Some cycling films: British Transport Films’ Cyclists Special

There's not much for me to tell you about this wonderful film from 1955 – only that it is indeed wonderful, and makes my heart yearn for being born in the wrong time.

Beyond that, it's fun to see some original hipsters, along with the excitement of a day out by train in the 1950s. Plus, the over-zealous narration is very amusing.

I guarantee that the final announcement card about further cyclists special services will leave you wishing you could sign up right away.
