Absolutely wonderful photograph of an enormous flood of cyclists, and on the left a 1938 poster asking cyclists to "Set other road users an example" with respect to the Highway Code

A wonderful historical drawing - at the London Transport Museum, welcoming in the new suburban buses: "We used to have to cycle to the station; but now we have the bus."

Exhibit showing cyclists (or rather, just each bike and safety clothing suspended) on a cycle lane, at the London Transport Museum. Shame that these don't represent the actual range of cyclists - why not cycle chic instead?
