Bicycles on Stamps – Great Britain -1978

1978 marked the Centenary of both the Cyclists Touring Club & and the British Cycling Federation. In 1878 the cyclists chose front wheels according to the length of their legs. By 1884 the low-built safety bicycle was attracting Women to cycling as a pastime. The 1920’s bicycles were mass produced and built for the comfort-gear case and rubber pneumatic tyres were common now. The design remained virtually unchanged or 75 years until First Moulton appeared in 1962.
