Vintage Bicycle to Work Week?

The British Pathe have made their thousands of history videos available for free on youtube and this is a choice selection from 1923 of the "National Bicycle Week" event that took place in Hyde Park.  It seems that no matter what era you are in, bicyclists want to celebrate the wonders of the most efficient form of transportation known to humans.  Is your bike ready to ride during Bike to Work, School, and Fun week (May 10 - 16)?

There are thousands of films worth perusing at the above link.

That's a really cool video :-) and the traffic of riders is something I would like to see this coming year!
