    Several shots of a man riding his bicycle along a pier and off the end.

  • Description

    No titles. Cyclist dives off pier into sea - 1899.

    Location of events unknown - could be France.

    View from pier of a small crowd watching as a man rides a bicycle past them and off the end! View from the beach or sea as we see the man approach the end of the pier and dive off the end. People on the pier applaud and a rope is thrown down to him. (Rope seems to be attached to his bicycle).

    Several more views of the man coming off the end of the pier (could be different people each time). Two shots show two men in a rowing boat on the water as the man dives through the air towards the water.
