On Me Bike - Cycling Round New Zeland 80 Years Ago
Geering, Lloyd
$16.00
Lloyd’s wife Shirley, having so often heard him say, “I went there on me bike”, insisted he record the intrepid cycling journeys he made around New Zealand as a young man in the 1930s and ’40s. An astute observer of people and places, Geering provides some fascinating glimpses of what life was like in Depression New Zealand and the impact upon a patriotic, imperialistic nation of events such as the death of King George V, the after effects of the Napier earthquake, the outbreak of World War II and the entry of Japan into the war (which led to the cancellation of the Auckland SCM conference when Geering and his party had got as far as Hamilton on their bikes)...
