I just have to post these vintage photos. The first one, a color(!) photo from 1953, depicting a group of cycling boy scouts pausing at a windmill, presumably reviewing the next stage of their trip. The second is from the 1930’s, part of the Zylstra family album, capturing two family members riding side by side, along an Amsterdam canal I can’t yet place, but I’m on it.

One observation: bicycling and accompanying attire hasn’t really changed at all.

As a history buff, I dwell on this stuff.

(click on the photo to see it full scale, as my blog template cuts it off by about 15%)
