STEVE TILFORD CELEBRATION OF LIFE

It has taken some time to get around to posting this because it is still close to impossible to believe that Steve will not be showing up on our doorstep again or that we’ll never see each other at a bike race or bike show or some special event where he was to be the main attraction.
