This two-disc collection provides a fascinating portrait of the British cycling experience on film featuring entertaining short dramas, animations, advertisements, newsreel items, public information films, and the exciting Children's Film Foundation adventure 'Skid Kids'. 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, celebrating classic brands such as Raleigh, Hercules, Moulton, Humber, Rudge and Witcomb.
