Out for a cushy ride in 1955

A great short 15-minute film from yesteryear and a thankful lack of cars.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have  ‘cyclists’ special’ trains today?

This is great so long as we all pedal, not just the poor fools at the front.  Oh and we get to share germs drinking from the same water bottle.  But what a great way to go on holiday!

So this would cost nearly £9,500 today. Just think what you could buy for that! And I dread to think what this would weigh. It would need the electric motor that it was equipped with.
