Velocipede Rather Than Railway (1868)

Since the raiway fares have been raised, several gentlemen have taken to travelling from the outlaying districts to the outskirts of the metropolis by the aid of velocipedes. The South London Press states that one gentleman can propel his velocipede at the rate of fifteen miles an hour.
