All these legend photos are great but I was hoping to see more photos of "forum legends" riding their bikes :-)

I don't know why but there's something not quite 'right' about seeing Alf on this Raleigh lo-pro. :? It just doesn't fit with the iconic image of him crouched over a USWB Shorter.

You want RB'er photos? Here's another of me in '86 riding the Tandem Club 25 mile championship in rather inclement weather (!) on the K24 course near Coventry. I'm with my mate also called Paul (and who also had ginger hair and a moustache) and we did 55-03. It was a bit dodgy on the several roundabouts on this course. The photo was taken with about a mile to go - and the pressure was beginning to show!

How does this machine stop? I see the brakes but where are the levers?

All is explained here -

A history of the rider and his bikes - including the 'hidden levers'.

Talking of the K24 here is me on the slip road from Leek Wotton RAB going up onto the A46 back in 1981 on a cold Sunday morning
