It's no "Meat & You: Partners In Freedom," but we enjoyed this 17-minute tutorial on how bicycles were made in England in 1945, back when bike lanes weren't a political bargaining chip, and pie cost six pence, and…

We also dig the authoritative English accent that delivers this classic line:

Couldn't agree more. So go outside and ride one already!
