Details

A two-disc collection which provides a fascinating portrait of the British cycling experience on film.

Featuring short dramas, animations, advertisements, newsreel items and public information films, the compilation spans from elegant nineteenth-century cycling through to the cut-throat 1928 Olympic Trails at the Herne Hill Velodrome and careless 1980s BMX kids.

Offering up a century of cycling in Britain whilst celebrating classic brands such as Raleigh, Hercules and the hand-crafted Witcomb Racing Cycle, this is a must for cycling enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
