Apparently, Cycling is in my BloodBy Will • Dec 21st, 2007 • Category: Cycling
So enlarge the photo and see if you can find a family resemblance.
Today, my mother e-mailed me the photo on the left of her mother cycling with some friends. It goes great with an old photo I already had of my grandad. I love these old photos. Both taken sometime in the 1920′s, I believe.
It seems, my grandfather was quite a racer. When my mother visited in the summer she gave me a cycling medal that he had won for a 12 hour race in the 1920′s. Yikes, 12 hours!
I must admit I can really can see the resemblance between my grandmother and my younger brother (honestly Jonny).
OK, now in the photo below: which one is my grandfather? Answers at bottom.
Fortunately, my niece Molly looks ready to carry on the family cycling tradition.
Answer: My Granny is third from left. My Grandfather is on the back of the tandem.
