Informal Cycle Race in a Village Road

Edwardian cycle racing at its best - albeit a little fuzzy! Riders take on all comers on an intriguing variety of bicycles.

Non-Fiction 1902 Silent


Bicycles made for one, two and three people go head to head in this brief glimpse of informal Edwardian leisure. Everyone in this slightly out of focus early film looks to be having a good time, as spectators move about the race line and cheer as the dust flies behind the lead riders. Stragglers soldier on, perplexed at the sight of our photographer and his camera.
