Eleven Blind Men Ride One Big Cycle, 1931

An odd-looking cycle that seemed to have some of the qualities of a railway train was seen on the roads near Upper Norwood, England, the other day. Its twelve riders pedaled along, seated in flexibly connected units of the “multicycle.”

This centipede among vehicles is twenty-eight feet long, but its flexible connections enable it to turn corners easily. It was built in 1931 for use by students at the Royal Normal College for the Blind. An attendant with normal vision steers it.

On this elongated cycle, built for the students of the Royal Normal College for the Blind, Upper Norwood, England, eleven of the sightless victims can ride guided by one rider who can see.
