Caption

The start of a North Canterbury Bicycling Club race at the Rangiora Recreation Ground in 1899. The club was formed in 1884, after some earlier racing on penny-farthings. In 1885 the club built a one-third of a mile banked track for £60. Riders and bikes were tested in tours over the rugged roads of those days.
