I succeeded. I have just achieved a lifetime ambition and got to 300,000 recorded miles and so become another HRC member to join this illustrious club. When I started riding with the club in 1965 or 1966 CCP Davies was the big mile eater. and on club Christmas tours John Fisher and the Swetmans were also 300,000 members.It has taken me 50 years of enjoyable cycling to reach the target. Could you let anyone who still remembers me know, and thank the club for starting me off on my mission.
I may have done another 50,000 but somewhere with house moves and tidying up I have lost 8 years of diaries, but still I have got the distance in writing. And I have just entered my first 2 events for 2017, so I hope to get a few more miles under the wheels this year.
