Belonging Exhibition: Display 1 of 17

Pupils at Linden Girls School about to start a bicycle race in 1960

9th July 1960

The first image in the Belonging Exhibition takes us back to the start of a bicycle race at Linden Girls School in Gloucester. The race is about to begin at the school's summer fete in July. However it is a somewhat unusual competition as it is a ‘slow’ race and so to win you had to come last, not first!  Sadly we don’t know who won it but it fair to say that a few probably fell off, especially if they had to stay within the lanes marked out on the grass!
