Cycling in Christchurch 1937

A photograph of a Christchurch intersection, February 1937.  People of all ages riding their bikes to work or do their shopping just like in some countries of Europe today. The  lycra clad athletes, water bottle on back, on lightweight bikes are absent.

Perhaps we need a revolution to return the streets to crowds of ordinary folk using a bike as basic transport. Car drivers beware! If we had it once upon a time, we may be able to have it again.
