You all know I am a bike rider and hence a sucker for just about anything on the subject. I am running this illustration just to give out a general reminder about some of the many benefits of riding a bicycle.
I wanted to include the picture above so anyone stumbling upon the post would still get some positive points regarding their health and weight.
Now for the Epic Bike Ride. The book A Wheel to Moscow and Back was written about 1895 in England about a 4281 mile bike trip. The trek was interesting, but what fascinated me the most was the fact that the author had advertisements in the back for the cycling equipment that he used. This was 120 years ago. I had no idea this kind of thing was done. I am including some of the ads which absolutely fascinated me as well as the cover below. I have to wonder to what extent the ads helped to finance the endeavor.
I hope you enjoyed this little ride down memory lane as much as I did.
