A Boy’s Racer

My first ‘real’ bike (well, not actually ‘it’ but what it looked like): A five-speed racer from Nottingham. Yes a Raleigh. Metallic sky blue, derailleur gears, dropped bars, thin saddle. The only way to go was low and fast! I racked up a fair few miles on this around the roads and country lanes of Wooler. Those were the days before helmets too.
