Tales from the attic

Any seasoned cyclist with a few ‘miles on the clock’ will know all about the little or, in some cases, very large boxes that languish in riders’ garages, store rooms or lofts.

I am no exception.

For me the urge to hang onto relics, old bits of gear, mementoes and items that stimulate rather than act as a substitute for memories are hard to suppress.

Although some may question the sanity of holding onto 30 year old toe straps and the like, museums, not to mention lofts, garages and store rooms would be pretty boring places to visit if everyone had thrown all their old stuff away.

This section of my site will be dedicated to the contents of my cycling attic and will hopefully stimulate memories of your own or at least bring a knowing smile to the faces of some of you..
