1926: The epic battle started at 2 AM. Riders went out in a downpour and even had to dismount on Tourmalet because of all the mud. By 10 PM, only 30 riders had crossed the finish line, and 15 were still missing the next morning.

1937: Gino “the Pious” Bartali on the Galibier pass. He went on to win the Tour in 1938, but is best known for helping partisans in Nazi-occupied Italy and ultimately saving the lives of 800 Jews.

There were various forms of ‘pedamotive carriage’ or velocipede during the 19th century. It was an early form of bicycle which was propelled forward by the rider pedalling cranks fixed to the front wheel(s). Interest in velocipedes dropped after the introduction of the bicycle in the form we know it today, which was both cheaper and less cumbersome. (1850)
