Maybe this will come out better if former was too wide and split up!

Hi Dale Sorry no pictures of a seemingly long gone accessory I 'm sad to sa y. But my Holdsworth Bike Riders Aids show the Campag as early as 1964 but they were available from some of the bigger cycle traders during the 1950's . The earlier ones made of various materials such strong cotton/ canvas with a webbing shoulder strap and waist strings to stop the bag from slipping away from ones back . The last I saw them being used were supplied by Ron Kitchen in the late 1970's. Many of the bigger clubs in the

UK had them made up with the club name/badge printed on them. The Club folk always referred to them with the nickname "bonk bags"! Hope y ou have some luck in getting support of members to make up a record in pictures. Sounds a good idea. Perhaps fellow member Paul Williams should add these items to his list of accessories he was seeking last even ing! Best wishesDoug SmithNorth DorsetUK
