A Bicycle Feat (1887)

A Bicycle Feat

We give an illustration of Mr W S Maltby’s ride on the large wheel of a bicycle, along the North Pier wall at Aberdeen, one day last month, an account of which was published in the Evening Express of Aberdeen of Oct’ 18. The wall is 25ft high on the water side and 8ft on the pier side and is about twenty inches wide. Mr Maltby, we believe, is one of the American team of champion bicyclists, “ready to meet all comers,” who may be heard of at the Sporting Life office.
