This video is an excerpt from the feature documentary, Victorian Cycles-Wheels of Change, produced and directed by Jim Kellett. The following is the director’s description from Youtube:
Today the bicycle is mainly known as a recreational vehicle and is enjoyed by people in every corner of the world. But at its outset, this controversial machine forged roads into society that revolutionized politics, fashion, and social policy as well as paved the way for the mechanized world of motion to come. Victorian Cycles, Wheels of Change is a fascinating documentary about the bicycle’s coming of age and its tremendous impact on society. It is filled with images of a bygone era, and the people who embraced its change.
