Mackenzie’s family never had a car, so his dad, a laborer at Dorman Long steelworks and later at Smith’s Dock, would often ride to work on his bike. Still, the young Mackenzie remained bike-less as he started work himself down the shipyard. ” Bikes were such an important part of the working environment down the docs they were like the horses of the working man – taking them to work, getting them to the beach – and it didn’t cost them anything. It was an incredible sight at the end of the shift at Smith’s Dock to see hundreds of men run to get through the bottle-neck, jumping on their bikes to get down the Dock Road, then carry their bikes across the bridge to the pub.” — Mackenzie Thorpe
