Sid and ‘friends’ – 3rd December

Over a hundred ‘friends’ from up and down the land joined Sid and Pat for the annual Sid and ‘friends’ get together at Brickendon Grange Golf Club on 3rd December. It is a celebration of the UK road racing scene from the fifties to the present day and numbers many national champions, Tour of Britain and Milk Race stage winners, London-Holyhead riders etc. Several are into their seventh decade of competition and tall tales figure large in the cross toasting. The day kicks off with a group ride to Panshanger for tea and return to the golf club for an excellent lunch. Chris Boardman made the trip from his Wirral home and was warmly greeted in recognition of his World record and Olympic achievements. Sid has his name on most club trophies and figures large in the club records lists. Can we pursuade him back to Welwyn track next year??
