Dave Gardiner – a trip down Memory Lane with the 1960’s Kirkcaldy & Dist. CC

We picked up our relationship after some 46 years and Dave very kindly mailed me a selection of pictures from the 1960’s which we’d like to share with you.


It was 1971 when I first joined a cycling club; Kirkcaldy & District CC with their red, yellow and black strip. One of the coolest guys in the club was Dave Gardiner, a signwriter to trade so whilst we rode somewhat mundane Mercians, Robertsons, Andy McNeils and Flying Scots his bike would be liveried up in proper red and white Faema trim, a la Merckx, right down to the little Duomo motif on the head tube.
