Some 50 years ago I used to go cycling with Joyce and Sid who used to have a tandem. They lived somewhere near Shepherds Bush, London. Joyce was a dressmaker and worked for Norman Hartnell. I still have their wedding photograph but we've lost touch over the years. Probably my fault because I've moved around continuously. If they have had children/grandchildren or if anyone recognises this, then let me know as it would be lovely to see them again. We also had another male cyclist called Chris. They will all be in their late 70s now.
