An Aspect of Hitchin Transport

The Bicycle

Patricia Gadd

BicycleThe unknown man who rode his bicycle into Hitchin over a hundred years ago pedalled his machine into the beginning of an illustrious future. Cyclists have enjoyed great prestige in Hitchin, and Pat Gadd’s delightful illustrated leaflet takes us back to the pioneering days of penny-farthings and boneshakers and the Hitchin folk who rode them.
