Bicycle & Motorcycle Cigarette Cards

There is only one pre WW2 cigarette card set that was devoted purely to bicycles and cycling, as far as I know. Player's "Cycling", issued in 1939, charts the history of the bicycle from the legendary hobby-horse through to 1930s cycle racing. Bicycle cards also appear in general sports, transport and invention card sets such as Churchman's "Kings of Speed", issued in 1939, Will's "Famous Inventions", issued in 1915, etc.

Many more sets were issued on motorcycles but, due to high demand, most are increasingly difficult to find these days.

I've listed a small selection of sets containing bicycle and motorcycle cigarette cards and vintage trading cards below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and tried to include all card titles.
