(Uncertain)

Summary

Cycling was a popular activity in the 1890s for both men and women. It was enjoyed as a recreational pursuit and was also organised as a competitive sport. The Heidelberg Bicycle Club was active in 1896 but there is no certainty that this square reflects Heidleberg interests; it may have been made by someone in Williamstown, or in another part of Melbourne.
