A Ride of Death

Posted by Rob Alderson,

There’s been a focus recently on the dangers facing cyclists on our streets, but this is not a new peril as evidenced by this amazing 1940s cycling manual. The combination of beautiful illustrations and fire-and-brimstone road safety advice – it’s subtitled Ride of Death and few featured bike-users escape with anything less than death – is oddly compelling. Good-looking and admonitory. Found via Retronaut.
