Photobucket Many people are proud of their 100 mph lap, but Jackie McCredie has a very special ton under his belt. Jackie is 100 today, making him the oldest TT rider.

A life member of the TTRA, he first rode in the TT in 1939. After the war he returned in 1948 to take 6th place on his Excelsior.

Still a passionate motorcycle enthusiast, Jackie ran his own bike shop in Jock's Lodge, in his native Edinburgh until he retired in 1987.
Resident now in Braeside House, he is a popular member of their community, playing the piano and dancing.

The staff in the home think the world of their motorcycling hero.

It's a really nice place, and I imagine there will be some piano playing, singing and general partying today!

Congratulations and best wishes from all at TTwebsite.
