John Bange Pilot and Bicyclist


The top image I saw a few years back, and it keeps popping up here and there. I always wondered who the rider was and where it was taken. Turns out it was a man called John Bange from Australia, who happened to be this cycling hero captured on film and unbeknown to me an early aviation hero and all round pioneer. Thanks to Bristol Cycle Festival and Velo Aficionado for bringing this little mystery to light and getting John Bange the credit he deserved. More info here and here.

    Thanks Steve, I’m glad the word is beginning to spread about Bange. This iconic image seems to resonate with anyone who shares an interest in cycling. Bange deserves to be know as the bloke in the picture. How’s that lean angle! Robert

      Hi Robert, thanks to you. Often with these sort of things the truth is often boring, on this occasion it’s a great story.
