units had specialized cyclist sections which were to be used in much the same way that traditional mounted infantry was
employed. This man's bicycle does not have the usual rifle bracket attached to the frame of the bicycle.  He could have
been a member of a regular rifle battalion such as the Rifle Brigade or the King's Royal Rifle Corps or a volunteer
rifle unit.
