Stockton Wheelers, 1976

Following on from last weekend’s Stockton Cycling event, here is a photograph of a group of the ‘younger’ Stockton Wheelers cyclists, stood on the steps of the Doric column next to the Town Hall, just before setting off on a Sunday club run. It was Stockton Wheelers Diamond Jubilee year of 1976 and I think this was a special Sunday run to celebrate the occasion. One of the riders in the photograph is Paul Curran who went on to win two commonwealth gold medals some years later.

  1. Are you related to Anthony Callender who will now be about 70. I went to Richard Hind School with boy with that name.


  2. Hilton McMurdo (centre – very blonde hair, Adidas top) was my neighbour in Fairfield. I think Hilton represented Great Britain in Cross-Country Cycling… a powerhouse, and a lovely guy. Lovely family….
