    The Athlete of 1890: a study

    The Athlete of 1890: a study

    I have been exploring the world of late 19th century athletes, focusing on swimmers, cyclists and runners.

    I want to imagine what it would be like to time-travel from 1890 to today and compete in a modern Ironman using the equipment and methods of a sportsman of the Victorian Era.

    In order to achieve this goal, I have been studying up on the habits and achievements of our athletic forefathers.

    I picked 1890 primarily because it represents the last year of the Highwheel bicycle otherwise known as the Ordinary bicycle as opposed to the now extremely familiar Safety bicycle.
