Beginnings of Cycling in Tiverton

The Tiverton Museum article on page 21 in this month's edition of the Mid Devon One Magazine is all about the development of cycling in Tiverton and the surrounding area.

Velocipede (or Boneshaker) - 1860s
To supply all of these cyclists, there were a number of makers and sellers of bicyles in Mid Devon. Tiverton had Woodgates Manufacturers, Frank Watson of Gold Street, Hannabuss of West Exe cycle agent and repairer, Mark Howe of Townsend cycle engineer and Stubbbs’ cycle works on Barrington Street.
