Double-Decker Bicycle Race
Submitted By: geecee
Who would have thought the sight of one of London's famous double-decker buses going 'round Piccadilly Circus would inspire the concept of this race. Once the idea of two men riding one velocipede was hatched by a nutty
cycling enthusiast of the local cycling club, a simple canvass of the membership brought the idea to fruition. The idea was to have five teams of Peddlers and Steerers who would ride piggy-back on the shoulders of the Peddlers and steer with their feet. They were required to make 3 circuits around the fountain with the statue of Eros, pausing before each circuit to imbibe one Refresher Squash (said drink to be split between the Peddler and the Steerer with 2 soda straws).
So it was that one fine Summer evening, the contestants met at the starting post at Piccadilly: the owners of five
sturdy British Raleigh two-wheelers, a pristine White one, one cheery Pink, a snazzy Silver one, a weirdly Purple one,
and finally a sunshine Yellow one, and their Steerers.
The owners were Tom Pearce, Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Davy & Harry Hawke (Peter Gurney and Dan'l Whiddon couldnít make it) and the Steerers were Artie, Bertie, Charlie, Danny, & Ernie. Unfortunately, only three of the teams completed the course, all right, then everyone was gathered up by the forces of the London Police and quite properly jugged for the night prior to coming up before the magistrate in the morning and being fined fivers all 'round for disturbing the peace and fivers all 'round, yet again, for creating a public nuisance.
What started off as a crazy idea has now turned into an annual charity event.
From this information and the following clues, for each Peddler, can you determine his Steerer, what colour bike they rode and the order in which they finished?
