Ashlee Family Films: Whirling Wheels, Bexley 1963

7 mins United Kingdom

Victor Ashlee showed great dedication in making this film of a serious-looking bike race around Kent lanes, moving his camera to several locations to get a variety of shots – and even, at one point, filming a terrific in-action close-up of the cyclists from a moving car. The race takes place somewhere in Kent, and features great background scenery. Also shows the post-race prize-giving in a village hall.
