ORIGINAL LUCAS FRONT CARRIER FOR COMPARISON. REPRO LUCAS CYCLO CARRIER: CONDENSED & EXTENDED. During WW1, all the major combatants deployed bicycles.
Its not possible to know exactly how many military cyclists there were, but its estimated that at least 100,000 British soldiers used bicycles in some capacity and at least 150,000 French and Belgians. A bicycle was an ideal means of transportation as it was comparatively lightweight it could be carried over obstructions and as well as being ridden could be loaded with equipment and pushed. It was particularly well-suited for conveying despatches, guerrilla action, patrols and reconnaissance a motorcycle was faster, but a bicycle was silent.
