From the laufmachine to the Brompton, learn about the evolution of the bicycle from two wheeled toy of the aristocracy through to the boom years of the cycling revolution today. Find out why newspapers are so integral to the story of cycling, why the yellow jersey is yellow and why steak was so important to keep a ride comfortable back in the day.

Beautifully documented with lively and insightful text, this is the perfect gift for the cyclist in your life, giving an alternative insight into the two wheeled revolution.
