South London and the 19th Century cycling boom (Zoom Talk)

28 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

At the back-end of the 19th century, cycling was the craze sweeping the nation.

Whether a 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 in. Join Balham CC’s Paul Darby for a look at cycling during this period through the lense of the south London cycling scene.

You’ll also hear the extraordinary story of how one photo and a niche local history blog morphed into one of the largest cycling club’s in the area.
