I would like to see any photos or adverts of clothing worn by early racing cyclists, from the earliest era up to about 1930.
Here are a few to get things started,
thanks to @filmonger for some inspirational advice.

Don't worry about taking over, I'm happy to let this thread wander hither and thither, just interested in what racers would wear back in the day. Any contributions much appreciated @kccomet
