  • Description

    Full title reads: "France. Cycling Extraordinary! 150 start in novel race all uphill - changing clothes on route - 4 miles through Paris traffic to Montmartre, and Schutz (winner) did it in 11 1/2 minutes!!"

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of cyclists racing around the streets of Paris. The cycle past Les Invalides.

    The cyclists leap from their bicycles and change into clothes - trousers and jackets - instead of their cycling gear.

    More shots of them riding around the City between the notorious Paris traffic.

    Shots of yet another clothing stop.

    More cycling - the riders approach the famous Moulin Rouge Cinema / theatre.

    Shot of cyclist No. 13 - presumably the winner - Schultz - being congratulated. Many of those gathering around are in fancy dress of costume. Schultz is given a congratulatory kiss on both cheeks - by a man.
