The next in this series of Vintage Cycling videos that is emerging from the darkness, the 1962 Tyneside Vagabonds reliability ride.

100+ miles through the hills of Northumberland back in 1960 in cotton trousers, shorts in some cases, wooly jumpers and for the most part no hats or gloves.

These were tough riders born in tough times and no matter what the conditions threw at them they were determined to have a good time, hats off to them!
