Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Cyclists featured prominently this week. The Dunedins have improved their performance. Gilwart and Edwards are smart and comical knockabout trick cyclists. 'How they manage not to get killed is a puzzle'. Rose Tilley sang 'Bird in a Gilded Cage'. The Hartley Wonders jumped in and out of barrels 'placed in apparently inaccessible positions'.
