I have read in Churchill's book (London to Ladysmith) in which he mentions Bicyclists from the Natal Volunteers used for reconnaissance. How effective were Cyclists in the Boer War? Any notable successes? Besides in Natal, where else were they used?
Don't forget Churchill's daredevil cycle from Doornkop with Hamilton's official despatches through the middle of 'Boer' Johannesburg to Roberts at Elandsfontein the day before Johannesburg was surrendered.
