The Illustrated Story of Road Cycling

Nick Higgins

Everything you need to know about road cycling – the bikes, the races, the famous riders – in an intricately illustrated, compact volume.

Every major historical development of the road bicycle and the road race is illustrated, from the first geared bikes to modern-day time-trial machines, and from the first penny-farthing races up to the modern Tour de France.

Also included are a wealth of facts, figures and stats, as well as intriguing and quirky stories from the history of competitive cycling.
