  • Fabulous Old Cycling Photos

    Posted by Jonathan on August 19th, 2004 (All posts by )

    Enough about the election for a while. Here’s a neat site that’s packed with dramatic photos from European races of the 1930s through 1950s. In those days a lot of roads were unpaved and the riders worked for peanuts.

    It’s interesting to compare these ancient mountain images with more modern views (e.g., here and here) of similar areas.

      Would love to see photos of Ezio Pinza when he was a cycling champ.

      You’re right. Those were great. I think I enjoyed the background as much as the subjects.
