Previously published in 1987 by John Murray, this is an updated edition with many new illustrations. It tells the colourful story of cycling: from dandies on hobby-horses to the present day. This book shows how the status of cycling continually bobbed up and down the social scale. On Your Bicycle will appeal to anyone interested in people and their ways, rather than pure techlogy: although techlogical developments and the social role of cycling are closely linked. It's a story of loud club-men on penny farthings, of aristocracy during the cycling boom of the 1890s, and of what happened when lower prices put bicycles into the hands of the working classes.
Jim McGurn is the author of nine books on cycling, and has published and edited several cycling magazines, including Bike Culture Quarterly. He is ASL Chief Executive of Get Cycling, a community interest company promoting cycling.
