A 20th century wagon train

the family that
rolls together,

On 1 May 1961, British Pathe presents GPO Clerk Jim Foster, his wife, and eight children rolling out of Ruskington in Lincolnshire. This cycling family, with 10 years experience in their saddles, typically hits the road with a collection of 14 bikes. But here, they've got a bicycle-built-for-4 with a baby-car and two 3speeds.

There is something about this that just makes me laugh.
