Congrats on your 75 birthday. I am glad you honour Jimmy Lane, I remember him well and the work he did for MRCC. Please also give my regards to Stuart Sutherland.
I remember jimmy lane well, he introduced me to Smith cycles and helped me look after my bike along with Ian Bruce, Andy Dudgon and a few that names can’t come to mind. I especilly remember my first down hill freewheel contest at the age of 16 (1973) where i could have won had I not hit a cattle grid on the way down.
also the road time trials setting off from the lay-by at my home village of Wallyford heading to Cockenzie and back.fond memories of a by-gone age.
it,s a pity I didn’t keep in touch. happy pedal pushing.

Hi Ian, well, Andy’s Dad, John, is still in the club – until very recently he was one of the dedicated timekeepers, every Wednesday he’d be at the Wallyford layby to help with the evening 10s – we’re still running these with Jock Show as one of the timkeepers. Freewheeling I know used to take place at the ‘Rigg but moved to Humbie a few years back..
