One Year Timetrial - photos urgently needed!
« on: December 10, 2014, 10:45:03 pm »
In the big count down to Steven Abraham's One Year Time Trial, we (his admin team) need more photos of Steve.  If you have any and would be happy for us to use them on either his website (http://www.oneyeartimetrial.org.uk/) or his up and coming Facebook page (which you must LIKE) PM me to organise e-mailing them through.  A snappy caption would be great and we will make every effort to credit you for your picture when possible.  Thanking you for your help in advance.  HK (aka The Brevet Bird)

I'll see if we've any from LEL. I'll save a few for the new website too, and get an article or two ready.

Steve shows his appreciation of the Great British weather.

This is at Pocklington on the return leg of the 2013 LEL.  This is the only photo I can find HK, so ignore the fb message I just sent you.

Thank you all and please keep them coming. Needed urgently might have been slightly too strong a phrase but certainly over the next few days.

Steve rode his bike (flat bars and panniers) from MK to Oxford, then to London with us, then back home to MK.

Steve on Mad Jacks John Seviour Memorial; not content with riding down from MK to the Hailsham start and then camping somewhere very off the beaten track he dragged his bike laden with camping gear round a Super Grimpeur  :thumbsup:

Have looked through all my photos of Audax events going back to 2001. Not one of Steve Abraham. I'm starting to wonder if he actually exists...

^there is one that captures TG doing what TG does best!

There should be a sweepstake based on how many fry ups Steve eats in 2015.
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

You have a pm from me. El Supremo has posted me some pix.
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.

and can (somehow, not sure how) be downloaded by HK should she choose so to do.

best regards and best wishes to Steve.

Masters: I respectfully request that all photographs posted here and elsewhere on yacf are credited to their original photographer.
It is both discourteous and a breach of copyright to do otherwise.

Chris Avery? Aka "PB Bear". Good grief there's a name I haven't heard in a few years. Anyone know what became of the good Mr Bear?
