Suburban Assault

Old British Transportation Films – Cyclists’ Special

with 2 comments

Suburban Assault friend Jenny had posted these on Facebook. They’re a fantastic glimpse of what cycling was like in England, back in the 1950s. It’s cool to see how some of the earlier Suburban Assaults were done, and I would love to have this sort of bicycle outing around here. Enjoy:

  1. Well, I am hoping to do one of these trips soon, will take the A train to Denton, bike around on the rail trail that goes to the lake, and have some ice cream.

    Besides the sense of adventure in the videos, for me it was really great to see the women cyclists taking an equal part.
