    Dennis Fitton I spent many hours prior to my 15th birthday with my nose in a Raleigh catalogue whilst trying to persuade my father to buy me a Raleigh Lenton.
    This cost a staggering £22. He bought me the bike and my world opened up. All of a sudden the city boy in Birmingham who had hardly been anywhere was exploring the beautiful counties of the Midlands and Wales.
    I am still cycling after 60 years and enjoying it just as much. I have cycled in most countries in Europe and on other continents too, but the lanes in Hertfordshire where I now live are as good as any I have seen.
    Most of the best things in my life have happened through cycling: I even met my wife when visiting a friend to borrow his bike.
