CTC Podcast: What did cyclists do in World War 1?

CTC members played a vital role in the battlefields of France as part of a cycling battalion. CTC's special free podcast looks at the contribution made by them and other cyclists during the Great War. Several annual CTC events take place to remember them and other fallen cyclists.
