Review

'Tells a wonderful tale from the Victorian invention through to modern Britain, but through the lens of real characters and enthusiasts, which puts the reader in the mindset of each era… Impressive to make such a complicated history so concise and accessible to a wide readership' --Mark Ian Macleod Beaumont, record-breaking long-distance British cyclist and author of the bestselling The Man who Cycled the World

'Well written, researched, and balanced, Revolution carefully documents early cycling and gives us a window into a world that's influenced every one of us who cycles today' --Dave Barter, author of Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder

'Extremely well-researched... a must-read for anyone interested in the history and development of the bicycle' Anna Hughes, author of Eat, Sleep, Cycle and Pedal Power

'Fascinating... a heart-warming, often humorous depiction of the development of the bicycle and its role in nurturing human relationships sporting, social, professional and romantic... touches the lives of cycling enthusiasts through the ages' --Maria Leijerstam, the first person to cycle to the South Pole
