Ken Bainbridge memories

I remember Ken winning the Carnival race in 1956. I was 13 at the time. He came over the line, and the first thing he did after he stopped was fumble in his jersey pocket after his fags, and lit up immediately.

He helped me and quite a few others when we were starting out, including Arthur Metcalfe and Ted Scurr. Took me to a lot of races when he was almost the only person with a car.

I put a note about his passing, on the 60’s remembered fb group, and there were quite a few people who remembered him, especially those who worked together with him on the Milk Race, and some of the Milk Race riders too.

RIP Ken.
