Photographs, Negatives, Slides and Plates of Cycling
This appears to be a theatrical cycling act from around 1912 but I do not have any information. However, as somebody who has competed in time trials myself, I have joked that the skin suit is not such a recent development in cycling apparel. Certainly, these women would have few issues with wind resistance, though they need many need visors attached to those bonnets!
A quandary for a cyclist. The road southwards from Overton to Sunderland Point crosses a tidal marsh and is submerged beneath the sea at high tide. Consequently, the old village and port is unique in that it is the only mainland community in the UK dependent upon tidal access. Here you can see two cyclists from back in the day who are waiting for the water to recede.
