At the end of the 19th century a cycling craze sweept the nation.

Whether commuter, sports fan or entertainer; socialite, middle or working class; man or woman – in the 1890s the bike had something for everyone and everyone wanted to join in.

Join Balham Cycling Club’s Paul Darby for a look at the South London cycling scene during this period.
