It was really difficult selecting just the few photographs we were able to fit in Issue 13 of Treadlie for our story looking at the history of photography and competitive cycling. There were just so many that we could have happily used! So here are a few more of our favourites for you to browse through;

CyclingPhotography_AustralWheelRace1898

The Austral Wheel Race is the oldest track bicycle race in the world still existing, with the event stretching back to 1887 where it was held for the first time on the Melbourne Cricket Ground over 3 miles (4800m). Pictured here is one of those early finishes in 1898.  Photo courtesy of the History & Heritage Commitee of Cycling Victoria.
