Cheers from Cow Bay Nova Scotia

Hello from Nova Scotia

The name is Alan, and i'm new to the forum, but have been into bikes since I was 10 years old, I am now 62.

I started riding and racing with Clifton CC in York U.K. until I emigrated to Canada with my folks in 1966. I helped coach the N.S. Canada Games team in 1969 ( couldn't ride as I had a British passport ) Raced In Atlantic Canada for a number of years, did the track clinic under Lucian Gillen at the old Pan Am track in Winnipeg in 1969, rode China Creek, Vancouver, and Woodbridge. After crashing at the Canadian Junior Road Race Championships in Hudson Quebec 1970, ( breaking my collarbone) I rode some, but found sports cars and girls...........

I worked as a bike sales rep in Atlantic Canada for HD Shields, Norco and Jim Miele in the late 70s & early 80s, before moving into jewellery, and am now semi retired.

In the last few years i've gotten back into cycling, enjoying riding both in Nova Scotia, and out of Zephyrhills during winter times in Florida. I still ride and have a passion for old steel bikes, ( "irons" ) and still play with old sports cars, motor cycles, and photography...............


Happy New Year All Cheers ! Alan
