This site is dedicated to Peter Turner.

Peter was born on the 14th January 1970, and sadly passed away 25th May 2009.

I first met Peter when we started school back in 1975.
As we walked to school with our mothers he turned to me and his first words to me were "Let's run!" - I remember grinning back at him, and we started running...our friendship grew from there.

Peter was one of those friends that was always there for you - didn't matter how long we may have left it before getting back in touch - it was always like we had spoken the day before - a true friend.

We never really argued, and loved to get out on our bikes and mess around....he was Godfather to my son George, and of course while 'sane' people would have opted for a christening gift of a silver plated this or that - Peter turned up with a minature Hoffman Condor bmx for him - that was the type of guy he was. Eccentric, kind and giving, right up to the end.

Any one that knew Peter, knew of his love for bikes. All types of bikes - road, mountain and of course BMX. Over the years he collected an impressive amount of BMX hardware - I have tried to document as much as I can by creating him his own pages within the on-line BMX Museum.
Please give it a look.

I miss him.

And that's the reason for this site.

Peter was an important part of so many peoples lives, and I wanted to create somewhere that people could share their stories and memories of him.

I'll always remember Pete for his sense of fun,
good humour, easy going nature and his willingness
to help others. If you were with Pete he would
lighten up your day.

I got to know Pete in his late 20's early 30's.
We met, when I was out on a bike ride and struck
up a conversation... which will come as no surprise
was about bikes, a subject he had an encyclopedic
knowledge of...

Pete was somebody who was independant in thought, he
didn't follow fashion or was swayed by trends, it
was what he liked, but not in a selfish way. This
was just his way to do things... what he liked...
the way he lived his life. He didn't preach or try to
influence you by saying this is the right way or be
judgemental or dogmatic ...
He showed by his actions, his enthusiasim, what gave him
joy, what gave him fun, what gave him pleasure... if you
didn't get it that was fine ... but this is me ... this
is how my life runs.

Pete, loved his family, his dogs, his whiskey (preferably malt), his food... he had spirit. Spend time with Pete and invaribly something would happen to make it memorable in some small silly way... something you could always look back on, talk about and laugh. You could laugh at him and he could laugh at you with total freedom, he was a friend a good mate. I'm sure you all will have memories of Pete, short events to remember him by. If something didn't happen he would be a bit dissappointed, good or bad it didn't matter, but if something did happen it would invariably be with him.

He'll still live with us all for the rest of our lives.
