On Yer Bike – Retro Cycling Adverts

1960s, 1970s, Retro Advertising, Sport • 6848 Views • Comments Off on On Yer Bike – Retro Cycling Adverts

Whether you cycle for sporting reasons, to get from home to work or even for your holidays there’s no denying we’re seeing possibly the largest ever growth in cycle-use ever. The sense of freedom, the fact that it is one of the best forms of exercise you can get plus the added bonus that it’s as cheap or expensive as you want to make it all add up to make cycling a very addictive hobby.

Here we look back to the days when steel frames were ridden in the Tour de France, air stewardesses cycled to work, Ron Kitching was still in business and you could get a top-of-the-range Schwinn with 10 gears for a mere $228.
