Folding BSA bicycles storming the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, who knew? Oh... probably Steve B!

folding BSA bikes used by the Canadian infantry (about 1,000 bike riders out of 14,000 men) at Juno Beach (second wave).

The Canadians had successfully used them previously during the invasion of Sicily.

After the soldiers were done with them, they just tossed them aside and many civilians suddenly had new wheels.
