Why should anyone bother creating even more web pages about a sport that is already well served? What more is there that needs to be said? Hasn’t every angle been covered already?
You would think so. But then my searches for some half-remembered cycling stories discovered either nothing - or things that seemed simply wrong. So years of accumulated paper records and photos were checked for missing facts. And this site was created as a result - with the paper records either sold, given away or recycled to free-up some space.
Making this web site has been very much a labour of love - a not for profit project created out of spare time and decades of following the sport. But with no options for handing over to any younger fans it is time to cut back on website work and get out more - while I still can. So some things may go and others may be left frozen in time ... But at least a little bit has been added to the Internet’s sum total of knowledge and just a few of the errors have been put right. And I must stay in touch with the sport now that Yorkshire is down to host the World Road Championships in 2019!
