Starting point


Stops along the route to describe some of the evidence in the Green Bicycle Mystery This ride visits some of the significant scenes in the days following 23 February 1920. It was on that day that canal haulier Enoch Whitehouse's tow rope brought a green bicycle frame to the surface. Although it slipped back in again Mr Whitehouse was probably convinced that he had seen the bicycle that was the subject of a £20 reward for information leading to its discovery. All this and more in the Case Ride! We finish the ride in the famous Leicester Castle Court Room, now part of DMU's Business School. Jeremy Robson, barrister and member of DMU Law School, will be talking about the case in those historical surroundings. Picture shows Neil Donoghue and Julie Fairgrieve who will be in character throughout the ride.
