By Royal Fi Warrant r J THE KINO ON HIS HuaiocK UYULK. The announcement that His Majesty the King has been ordered by his medical advisers to resumo cycling, which he dropped a couple of years ago, has been widely commented upon, and people who believe in healthy out- door exercise have taken the King's case as an example to prove their theory. Kinr- Edward possesses three Humber tricycles, and it was his habit to keep one at Buckingham Palace, one at Saoidringhani, and the third at Wind- sor. One of these has recently been returned to Humber. Ltd., Coventry, and has been com- pletely overhauled and renovated for His Maj- esty's use. The King's Humber has three equal- 26in. wheetc,, shod with lgin. wired on Dunlop tyres. A tree wheel is fitted, and a gear of 58in., which many cyclists will con- sider low, particularly in combination with the 7in. cranks which the King- uses; bub it must be borne in mind that the object is comfort and mild exertion, rather than great speed, so that the low gear will be very suitable for the purpose for which this tricycle will be used by its Royal owner. The King affect- a large sund very comfortable saddle—a Brock's B., 90 size 3. The handle-bar is 13in. wide, of raised1 pattern, and rubber pedals are fitted. Two brakes are provided, both hand applied by ex- ternal levers; one is a rim brake on the front wheel, the other a band brako on the rear axle. Fhe machine is beautifully finished and enarn- illed black; the. rims have black centres, plated 1 edges, and red lineSt The t,wjgJ» mejJgtges .ç'
