Happy Christmas Cycling 2007

Your website team, Maurice and Roy, wish you all a Christmas of warm fellowship. And a pause perhaps to give thanksgiving for the joy that friendship in the world of cycling brings.

The scene above has been taken from the cover of the Christmas edition of the CTC 'Cycletouring' magazine for December 1981. The photographer was David Pountney, and the scene is Far Forest near his home at Kidderminster.

We have chosen this shot as we believe it reflects the true spirit of cycling that we need to protect for the future. Thank you David, wherever you are now.

And with so many children receiving a bicycle for Christmas, and holly being a symbol of the festivity in northern latitudes, have a peep at this Youtube clip. We are sure you will agree it brings the two charmingly together.
