Hi sean,

there was a group of us who hung out and trained / raced togeather,

with steve, there was myself,Phil lock,martin Amor. few years later Mick Raftery.

We all joined around the same time  around 1976/77, so were schoolboys. I was around 13/14 the others a year older.

We went on all the club runs in the winter,weekends away, christmas booze ups ect in the woods with the older lads.

Also raced  full seasons, time trials, road racing ,track.

It was an eventfull  5 or 6 years and great times !

Hello all, finally seen the light and re-joined the Saracen if only in cyberspace!

Good to see posts from my old mates Steve Shepherd and Ian Cook.

Interesting to read that Steve wants to ride a 12 hour! Next time I catch up with him I'll remind him of that post.

Great to see Ian again a couple of years back, even if it was at my old work place.

Currently out of the Country but when I get back it will be nice to get the bike dusted off and might even consider pinning a number on again!

Anyway all the best to everyone past and present

Great to hear from you again Phil, and a big welcome back into the club.

Get that bike dusted down and come and join up with one of our club runs.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Mick.
