On Yer Bike: A History Of Cycling On Film (DVD)
ON YOUR BIKE: A HISTORY OF CYCLING ON FILM (2-DVD SET) Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race. H G Wells.
This two-disc collection provides a fascinating portrait of the British cycling experience on film featuring entertaining short dramas, animations, advertisements, newsreel items, and public information films. From nineteenth-century women elegantly displaying their proficiency to the cut-throat 1928 Olympic Trials at the Herne Hill Velodrome and careless 1980s BMX kids meeting untimely ends, the films on this set offer up a century of cycling in Britain whilst celebrating classic brands such as Raleigh, Hercules, Moulton, Humber, Rudge and Witcomb.
