These days there's motorists, traffic-lights and Giant Hogweed to contend with! But take a look at when bike-riding was cushy!

Those were the days eh?  Very Happy 

Not for the faint-hearted.

Think I prefer the 'easy' cycling of today  chuckles

Oh my gosh, I laughed out loud in delight when I actually clicked on the link because I'd had an mental image of seeing people pedaling while out on picnics, etc in the early 1900s ...

And to find those photos waiting - even more wonderful!! 

Gosh, he was so so so much braver than I - the people he met must have been wonderful (the snakes not so much!!) - and an experience so unlike any others!

Wonderful to see the pictures and read about them - and then to realize
his granddaughter had a duplicate bike made and rode the final leg of his journal to celebrate 100 years since his trip - wonderful!

So enjoyed this article, Condor!! - thanks so very much.

I will stick with a pedal exercise bike. It goes nowhere.  Laughing

That was some ride Condor and what a load he had to carry those cameras were not of the compact digital type of today.

Seen a young fellow here in Warminster riding from a one way street onto the main road, no harm in that you think but this lad was riding no handed whilst texting on his mobile phone.
