Bicycle: The History


In this, the ultimate history of the bicycle, David Herlihy recounts the saga of this far-reaching invention and the passions it aroused. The pioneer racer insisted the bicycle would become "as common as umbrellas." Mark Twain was more skeptical, enjoining his reader to "get a bicycle. You will not regret it-if you live." Herlihy shows readers why the bicycle captured the public's imagination and the myriad ways in which it reshaped the world.
