Dome at dusk: Australia’s golden age of cycling
State Library Victoria
Visit the Changing face of Victoria exhibition to uncover the stories of the endurance cyclists at the centre of Australia’s 1930s cycling craze, including Malvern Star-sponsored Hubert Opperman, whose celebrity once rivalled that of cricketer Don Bradman and racehorse Phar Lap!.
Post-World War I Australians were gripped by the endurance cycling craze at a time when questions about colonialism, masculinity and modernity were emerging in the public consciousness.
