Olympic medallist, record-breaker, pioneer of the lightweight racing bike, wheel builder, gearing guru and Moulton man. Here Jack is interviewed in his own home in Wiltshire.
Alex Moulton – a lifetime in engineering
Steam engineer, aeronautical engineer, automotive engineer but most famously, creator of the iconic Moulton bicycles – still attracting a cult following after 50 years of development. 94 minutes.
John Woodburn – time trial legend
John Woodburn is one of Britain’s favourite amateur riders, still going strong as a veteran. Whilst a young 25 mile champion, he became part of Alex Moulton’s development team and broke the Cardiff-London record on the Moulton small-wheeler. He went on to many other successes on more conventional machines, including breaking the End-to-End record. 47 minutes.
Derek Roberts – cycling author and historian
Co-founder of the Southern Veteran-Cycle Club (now the Veteran-Cycle Club), Derek Roberts has led a crusade to uncover and uphold the truth in cycling history. He has demolished myths and corrected many errors. Derek is no mere pedant but a man who loves cycles, cycling and cyclists – as you will discover in this fascinating interview. 58 minutes.
John Pinkerton – cycling author and historian – part 1
When cycling historian John Pinkerton knew he was dying of cancer, he was determined to record his reminiscences for posterity. Pinky therefore became interviewee and Tony Hadland the interviewer. Alan Luckett was cameraman and sound recordist. 86 minutes.

David Duffield – more than just a voice
Known best these days as a cycle sport commentator, David Duffield has had an amazingly varied career. He worked at various times for Phillips, Moulton, Raleigh, Falcon, Peugeot and Halfords, and was an accomplished sportsman, breaking the End-to-End tricycle record. He was Alex Moulton’s marketing man and later introduced BMX to the UK. In this 1999 interview, David reveals the depth of his involvement and interest in cycling. 73 minutes.
Vic Nicholson – won more races on the Moulton than anyone else
In 1965, Vic Nicholson won 15 major time trials on the Moulton, was placed in 9 others and won the Reading Track League. In 1967, again on the Moulton, he broke the Birmingham-Bristol-Birmingham record by more than 25 minutes and regained the Cardiff-London record for Moulton by an 18 minute margin. In this interview, recorded in February 2015, Vic talks to Tony Hadland about his cycle racing career, with special reference to his time on the small-wheeler. 32 minutes.
