I was browsing for something on the British Pathe News web site and stumbled across these two clips which you might find interesting:

This one features Evelyn Hamilton the 1935 British Womens Professional Cycling Champion doing a Government Information Film, but what is she riding....but a Hetchins!!

This second clip features the famous Eileen Sheridan embarking on her End-to-End ride. So what is the significance of this you may say! But...standing next to her on her right in the check sports jacket is...non other than the famous Claud Butler, because if you look closely at Eileen's jumper, you will see she is promoting Claud's cycle!

Great stuff!
