About this product
- DescriptionNo sport demands and celebrates the suffering of its participants like road racing, yet the pursuit of cycling was formed out of a spirit of emancipation, freedom, invention and revolution. It started with Victorian adventurers who took their new machine across continents, up unscaled peaks and into the first races, followed by those who saw the potential of the bicycle as a radical mode of transport, before the twentieth-century sun shone on a golden age of cycling, bringing fame and fortune to its glamorous new sporting superstars. Through fifty key riders, from early pioneers like Mark Twain to modern superstars like Eddy Merckx, Break Away is a fascinating and arresting new history of road cycling.
- Author BiographyFor the last four-and-a-half years, Euan Ferguson has been the principal bars and pubs writer for Time Out London. Every week, he travels all over the city to anonymously review cocktail bars, real-ale inns, gastropubs and hip drinking spots. As part of his role he is also Time Out's deputy chief sub editor. Euan has contributed to numerous Time Out books, including the last five Eating & Drinking Guides and London's Best Bars (published 2010). Before his career in journalism, Euan was a successful bar operator in Edinburgh, with years of experience at all levels of the licensed trade. This, combined with the insider knowledge that comes with visiting hundreds of establishments, allows him to write with unrivalled authority on London's bars and pubs.
