Australia’s Rich Cycling History

by Jim Fitzpatrick

Did you know that Australia once had the largest bicycle path network in the world? or that Australian soldiers were at the forefront of the first significant wartime use of the bicycle? Or that at one time, the world’s richest bicycle race was held in Australia?

Hear Jim Fitzpatrick present on Australia’s very rich history of cycling with lots of great images.

Jim is Australia’s premier cycling historian and author of “Wheeling Matilda”, The Bicycle and the Bush”, “The Bicycle in Wartime” and “Major Taylor in Australia”.

    Hello
    I have an old badge with S B C by W Burtt and I believe this relates to Sydney Bicycle Club maybe from late 1800s.
    I was wondering if you knew any more about this badge and its history.
    Cheers
    Rob Thompson
