Vintage bicycle posters

A vintage bicycle poster is a poster that features visual, style and design features inspired by past eras, usually between the late 19th century and mid-20th century . A vintage bicycle poster is characterized by its retro and nostalgic style . It can represent scenes from old cycling races, illustrations of vintage bicycles or even vintage advertisements linked to the world of cycling. These posters are often designed to promote bicycle brands, cycling events, cycling races, cycling clubs or products related to the world of cycling. These advertising posters were produced mainly at the end of the 19th century and until the first half of the 20th century. They are considered today as collector's items that enter the field of art. Indeed, the style of the posters was influenced by different styles (Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Cubism etc.).


The development of the bicycle at the beginning of the 20th century

A means of transport and a sport popular with the general public:

The bicycle was invented in Germany in 1817 by Baron Karl von Drais. At the beginning of the 20th century, the bicycle experienced considerable growth in France and around the world, becoming a popular means of transport and a much appreciated leisure object. Cycling has seen its popularity grow as an affordable and convenient means of transportation, particularly in Europe and North America. Bicycles had become a symbol of freedom and independence, providing people with the ability to get around easily. Cycling has also grown in popularity as a sport and leisure activity. Cycling competitions, including road races and track events, have attracted increasing numbers of participants and spectators. The famous Tour de France competition held its first edition in 1903 (this competition still takes place today).

 

Birth of major bicycle brands:

Several important bicycle brands emerged in the early 20th century, contributing to the popularity and innovation of the bicycle:

  • Peugeot cycles : The Peugeot Cycle brand, created in 1882, is one of the oldest and most famous in terms of bicycles. It played a major role in the development of cycling by producing robust and reliable bicycles.

  • Raleigh cycles : The Raleigh brand, of British origin, also appeared at the beginning of the 20th century and quickly became one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the world.

  • Schwinn Cycles : In the United States, the Schwinn brand was founded in the early 20th century and enjoyed considerable success in producing bicycles for the general public.

  • Bianchi Cycles : Founded in Italy in 1885, Bianchi has continued to manufacture high quality bicycles and become one of the most iconic brands in cycling.

Technological progress in cycling:

  • Steel Frame: In the early 20th century, the use of steel frames made bicycles lighter, stronger and more durable.

  • Gear Systems: Improved derailleur systems have allowed riders to adopt variable gears, which has greatly improved their riding experience, especially over varied terrain.

  • Upgraded Tires and Rims: Reinforced rubber tires and rims have replaced solid rubber tires, providing better grip and ride comfort.

  • Improved brakes: Drum brakes and pad brakes have become more efficient and have helped improve the safety of cyclists.

 

Technological innovation and enthusiasm for cycling in the early 20th century laid the foundations for the continued evolution of cycling, with major advances in the following decades. Bicycle brands subsequently decided to advertise to promote their products. This is the birth of bicycle advertising posters.
