According to the original  caption, this contraption has been developed to generate electricity. The  equipment necessary to convert the pedal power into electrical power is fitted  to the rear of the bicycle. This young soldier is providing a demonstration. He  is in full uniform and is wearing a steel helmet, and a bag round his  neck.
