Canadian History – Bicycles in War 2

When we first started, we posted Canadian History – Bicycles in War?, we were amazed that bicycles had been used by Canadian troops in World War 2. This little know fact, which was lost in many history books, and classes, surprised me more than anything. It took some more digging, in honour of Remembrance Day, we thought we would share these photos.
