About this product
- DescriptionAs one of the oldest cycling clubs in the world the Anfield has an amazing history. The early members in the 1880 and 1890s helped to shape competitive long distance cycling and time-trialing, and today the Club hosts the longest running time trial in the country. Tucked away in the archives, and w brought to light in this book, the unbroken history and continuous run of Circulars also provide a unique commentary on the social history of the First and Second World Wars. Spanning the history of cycling, this unique collection celebrates the club's amazing pictorial heritage and paints a remarkable picture from the pioneering years of racing to the present day. Founder members included George Pilkington Mills, the greatest cyclist of his day. He held Lands End to John O'Groats records on various machines, won the first Bordeaux to Paris race and inspired the Tour de France. Others were Lawrence Fletcher, who helped form the CTC, and John Houlding, the father of Liverpool Football Club, MP. In 2013 the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded the ABC a grant to conserve and share the collection. For digital output and more information visit www.anfieldbc.co.uk.
