Another cheap day out thanks to the £2 bus fare scheme, the X46 York–Hull service that takes bikes, and the rather good cycle gallery in Hull’s free Streetlife Museum. It’s a friendly, lively and engaging place well worth a visit. The only thing dry about the displays is the lack of moisture, which I was very grateful for: it was chucking it down with rain outside.
I was especially pleased to see good coverage of cycle politics from the early 1900s onwards, as well as plenty of stuff about touring in the golden interwar years. The collection is strong on early machines too, including a Hull-built velocipede from the 1820s. That’s some balance bike.
