An ordinary ride
Today I received a photo from Capt Wilson of the OOCC - Oamaru ordinary cycle club a bicycle club in the town of Oamaru , New Zealand where I used to live. The photo was taken in several years ago when 4 OOCC riders including myself accompanied a stage coach pulled by a team of 4 horses from the old gold mining village of St Bathan's to Cylde in New Zealand's central otago. Even though it would be possible to complete the journey in a day our trip was spread over 3 days as it was part of an re enactment for the first postal service in the area.
Pictured above from left to right are Sub Capt Micheal O'Brien, Wheelmen Gerald lynch Blosse, ( Myself - Capt Don Speden ) the fat one on the right, I have thankfully lost weight since that photo was taken
