So sad that we can not try them again. There are still lanes near where I live where the lane has two strips of tarmac and 3rd strip in the centre of grass.! True. Good memories of an age of happy cycling - I'm glad that I experienced the 50's. I remember well the excursions. So sad that we can not try them again.

But perhaps not the best advert for bikes. Ken doesn't ride but he's done more for cyclists than almost any other individual I can think of. Vote for Green Ken! I love Boris.

I always said the old days were the best! I think we've got to really fight to get bikes back onto the train. Vote for Boris in the Mayor for London! It might be a good start!

The rail networks of today need to be a lot more proactive in support of cycling to encourage people to use their bikes. My experience to date has been that trains offer a very limited capacity for bikes today! A superb piece of cycling history showing people having fun on bikes.

(at least they were 5 years ago when I did the event). Every second or third carriage is used as a bike park. Although the modern cramped passenger conditions on it don't match the apparently civilised conditions shown in the film!
