• Short Summary

    A new kind of bicycle is taken for a spin in Paris.

  • Description

    (Main Pathetone titles.)

    Titles read: "Armchair Cycling. We found it in Paris - something really new for the Tired Business Man. Here we are - !"

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of a man cycling along the Paris streets in a new kind of bicycle with a low seat; the cycling action is done in front of the centre of the body rather than below it. I am informed by bicycle expert Alan Killick that this is called a Recumbent Bicycle; these are still seen around today.
