25th County of London Cyclist Battalion. The London Regiment

The 1/25th battalion’s WW1 service was undertaken in India and the North West Frontier. In 1917 they participated in the Waziristan Campaign. In 1919 they helped quell the Amritsar uprising, and participated in the 3rd Afghan War. In 1917, 200 of the 1/25th left India and fought in Mesopotamia. Most of the Battalion did not return to the UK until Dec 1919. All without their beloved bicycles.
Some members of the 2/25th served in France attached to other regiments.

The 26th Middlesex (Cyclist) Volunteer Corps

THE thirty-three years from 1887 to 1920 witnessed the conception, birth, growth, adolescence, and premature death of military cycling (as distinct from mere despatch riding) in the British Army.
For the first twenty of these years, the 26th Middlesex (Cyclist) Volunteer Corps was `the only unit in Britain devoted entirely to the development of cyclist tactics. During the next seven years, its successor, the 25th (Cyclist) Battalion, The London Regiment, was in the forefront of the movement until, on conversion to infantry, it retired to permit its Second Line, already over a year old, to carry on the tradition almost to the 31st March, 1920, when cyclist units, as such, ceased to exist in the British Army.

South Africans Bicycle Portraits


The Bicycle Portraits project was initiated by Stan Engelbrecht (Cape Town, South Africa) and Nic Grobler (Johannesburg, South Africa) early in 2010. Whenever they can, together or separately, they’re on the lookout for fellow commuters, and people who use bicycles as part of their everyday work, to meet and photograph. They’re finding out who rides bicycles, why they ride bicycles, if and why they love their bicycles, and of course why so few South Africans choose bicycles as a transport option. There is no specific range of questions asked, they’d rather just establish a conversation around the rider’s life and where his or her bicycle fits into it. Please bear in mind that these recordings were transcribed verbatim and that english is not the first language of many of the characters they met. Being avid cyclists themselves, this project is as much an investigation into South African bicycle culture as it is an excuse for them to ride their bikes and take photographs. Follow the project on Twitter or contact us at dayone@me.com

Silvina Bullrich – la bicicleta

Libro sacado de la biblioteca familiar, escrito por la argentina Silvina Bullrich en 1986 y que pese al explícito título no guarda relación alguna con el ciclismo.

La Bicicleta es un país inefable, tan disparatado como reconocible: las empresas deben muchísimo dinero a la banca internacional pero, en vez de pagar, solicitan nuevos créditos: la vida es un juego continuo, regido por el azar de las cotizaciones. Sus habitantes recorren el planeta haciendo turismo y gastando divisas a manos llenas. Un día son ricos y al siguiente se hallan en la miseria; ignoran olímpicamente la moneda de su país pero hablan con total naturalidad de dólares, precio del oro o de tasa flotante.
Roque es un prominente banquero en La Bicicleta. En uno de sus frecuentes viajes, conoce a una bella azafata llamada Alegría, se enamora de ella, y la lleva a su insólito país. La muchacha no sale de su asombro frente al desfile absurdo de los acontecimientos que diariamente viven los ciudadanos de La Bicicleta.”

Eso si, el argumento está de rabiosa actualidad.

Velo: Bicycle Culture and Design Book

Edited by R. Klanten / S. Ehmann and published by Gestalten.

Velo introduces a wild bunch of passionate cyclists – frame builders, urban planners, artists, photographers, and those who ride professionally – who are making an impact. They are not only shaping styles, but promoting cycling as a primary form of transport. The book also explores the aesthetic of today’s cycling culture and presents custom-made frames and art bikes as well as a selection of contemporary illustration and design influenced by the cycling movement. Geared toward anyone who has a personal or professional interest in cycling, Velo is the fast lane into a current topic that is both entertaining and socially relevant.
