The velocipede invented by Baron Karl von Drais in 1817 started the craze for the two-wheeled machine that has had a renaissance that few would have predicted.

With stories from amateur and professional cycling, this is a thoroughly entertaining collection of tales for any two-wheeled enthusiast....
