Enamel advertisement for a Raleigh bicycle, before the days of carbon, suspension forks, and silly ideas about cycling as an ‘extreme sport’. I found it in the British National Railway Museum, in my parents home town of York.

I’ll add more posts, as I’ve got access to a bike, and York is a an official ‘cycling city’ and as such has more infrastructure than I’ve ever seen in the UK before; not enough to impress someone from Copenhagen or Freiburg, but a lot nonetheless. It also has a lot more cyclists than I’ve seen in the UK before.

Goodness, do you think those two might be connected?
