The Questioning City (we know the answer)


Brilliant flashback to Cambridge, UK in 1959. Splendid shots of cycling scholars, complete with pipes on occasion.

We like the question posed at 0:26: "And you, on the bicycle. What will you be?" What will you aspire to?

Great freedom and contentment there,not much noise and very little Motor Traffic to worry about unlike today.

If only it was like this today!

Actually, we're very lucky - Cambridge must be one of the best places in the UK to get around by bike. The city centre is now closed to cars - officially . . .

Loved the clip

Great clip from the past. Notice how no one seems to bother locking up their bicycle. And the bikes can't have been cheap in 1959.
