I was looking through some photos from World War One. There were quite a few showing soldiers using bicycles. The British army even had a specific bicycle corps.
Soldiers were given bicycles to help faster troop movement, but it looks this roads was too muddy to cycle on.
These cyclists don’t even seem to be wearing a cycle helmet. Talks about socially irresponsibility! I don’t see many hi viz jersey amongst the platoon either. I don’t know how they managed to avoid being run over by tanks!
And don’t get me on to their position in the middle of the road.
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but it was too depressing to say anything serious about this cycling ad, which got banned for being socially irresponsible.
Funny or not, around 50% of Premiership sides are sponsored by gambling companies.
