EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the excitement and determination of the cyclists participating in the 24-hour Bicycle Race at Herne Hill Velodrome on the 22nd of July 1892. The image, taken shortly before the start of the race, shows a sea of cyclists and their ordinary bicycles, also known as penny farthings, lined up at the track. Among them is the eventual winner, F.W. Shorland (centre background), who went on to ride an impressive 413 miles in the 24-hour race. J.M. James (right of the image, no. 3) came in second place with a distance of 407 miles. The deciphered image, which is part of the historical ILL collection from Mary Evans Prints Online, provides a fascinating glimpse into the past, showcasing the grit and endurance of these early cycling pioneers. The 24-hour race at Herne Hill Velodrome was a significant event in the history of cycling, with riders pushing their limits to set new records and prove their mettle. This photograph stands as a testament to their spirit and the thrill of competition that continues to drive athletes to this day.
