I feel that I must ‘agree with ” Spectator ” who advocates motor-cycle racing for beginners in the motor-racing game. There is no doubt that one learns a tremendous amount from high-speed motor-cycling—quite apart from a thrill which the fastest car cannot produce. What can compare with taking an open bend so fast that one’s left knee runs through long grass growing on the roadside when the bike is canted well over ?
But I would go further than “Spectator “—I suggest cycle-racing for real road-sense ! On a cycle one feels even more ” part of the machine ” and the thrill of fast riding on a razor-blade saddle and 27 inch by 1 inch (yes ! one inch) tyres gives a thrill worth the work. I am, Yours etc.,
