1962 Winter Reliability Ride

Brilliant
 
quite a few of these riders had what appear to be roll bags/saddle bags that look visually similar to these...

What are they? Haven't seen them before.

In the film, a fair few look to have a rolled up cape and maybe a folded tubular strapped under/behind the saddle (as you'd expect) - well before the days of lightweight anoraks/jackets/cagoules consigned capes to a rarely (or never) used option.

Well, write it down boy ......
Only just seen this, it's great! Interesting that,whilst there's an assortment of woollen tops, most are wearing 3/4 lowers and long socks. Few with any sort of head covering either, in winter.

That's brilliant. I was a year old. Cycling of that era had a certain style that is unrepeatable.
Now then, wheres my knitted jumper gone!

We still have reliability rides early in the season (Feb) but the gear is a little more up to date. Soup and stovies at the local church hall afterwards brilliant!!
