The History of Cycling in Fifty Bikes: From the Velocipede to the Pinarello - Tom Ambrose

With Capital Bikeshare, enthusiasm for two-wheels is reaching the mainstream in D.C., so what better time to revisit where the vehicle has been—as the working man’s horse, a leisure activity, or the athlete’s rocket. If you loved It’s All About the Bike, Tom Ambrose’s encyclopedic new book provides more of the developments and stories that made Robert Penn’s previous journey through bicycle construction and design so fascinating. The History of Cycling in Fifty Bikes (Rodale, $25) is an illustrated compendium chock-full of photographs, inventors, and technical developments that show how bicycles are both elegant and innovative.
