Syd Greaves was a railway porter who took charge of the Ogdens' tandem when they got the train to Fleetwood. Stan and Hilda were planning to cycle through Lancashire on the tandem but left it with Syd and got the train instead as they found it too hard. When they got back they kept up the pretence that they'd rode the tandem but no one was fooled as Syd had returned the bike to Ray Langton a few days earlier.
