There are all sorts of great cycle-related shots, including some cheesy ones of Sir Jimmy Saville and some steam-driven bicycles but the best one is the ‘cyclist of the future’ from 1933. This is a black and white photograph of a socialite in a silver suit standing next to her ‘wireless’ bicycle, a bike complete with telephone. To find this image type ‘Hercules’ into the search box.
