Bike Tricks from the 1920s

Bike Tricks from the 1920s

The collection of photos we're about to show you were originally captured on January 29, 1921. During the early 20th century, one-legged bicycle duo Herbet Bell and Joe Garso would perform cyclists tricks around the streets of Washington D.C. Each rumored to have lost a limb at war, the imagery you're about to see helped immortalize these two men as entertainers, and demonstrates their will to achieve greatness, even from the most traditional means.
