Cycling on Australia Post stamps

Cycling on Australia Post stamps

“Recreational, commuter and competition cycling have long been popular with Australians,” said Australia Post’s Philatelic Manager, Michael Zsolt, “and this stamp issue embraces a resurgence in this trend.”

He is talking about four new stamps that will be released on 13 October, all with a cycling theme.

Two of the bikes featured are from Paul Farran’s collection, including a Penny Farthing from 1870 and a ‘sprung’ bike by Finlay Bros from the 1930s.

The “custom-made road bike” stamp features the craftsmanship of Geelong-based frame builder Darren Baum.
