What did Cyclists Carry in 1897?

A lot of stuff, it turns out. Personally I would leave the prayer book and the sperm oil at home, but I would definitely bring my revolver and British pluck and grit. Would all of this fit in my Carradice Nelson saddlebag? I doubt it. I’d probably have to bring a fanny pack too.

      Brigand: “Stop there cyclist. Your money or your life.”

      Cyclist: (Draws out revolver and Union Jack): “Sir. It is only fair to warn you that I am armed, and British.”
