An inexperienced young man receiving instructions in a cycle shop. He then mounts the motor bicycle, which he has been persuaded to buy, and shoots into the street. The machine gets up speed and is soon beyond the rider's control. A man precariously perched on a ladder in position against a street lamp finds his support whisked away, an organ grinder is brought to the street with his instrument, and in making his way between two perambulators the cyclist brings both to the ground. Next a painting carried by two men is torn to pieces by the rider in his course, and a policeman upset, and the exciting journey ends in the basement of a house, where the young man is drenched with water by the laundresses among whom he had descended and roughly treated by the many persons he has upset and who have followed him into the house.
