No more cars at Stonehenge but here are some bikes, from 1896

From tomorrow you won’t be able to park a car near to the hallowed stones, you’ll have to take a shuttle bus from the visitor centre. No doubt there’s a bike park at the centre and bikes will also be verboten by the megaliths.

It wasn’t always so. Here’s a couple of pix from Cycling Illustrated, May 1896:
