Cycling was hugely popular as a cheap leisure pursuit in the early 1900s.
Specialist maps, such as these, were used to plan trips out into the Essex countryside for local people.
This map has been published by the Hovis bread company – presumably hungry cyclists would have packed sandwiches with them!
