About the Author
Bill and Carol McGann have had their lives inextricably tied up with bicycles about as long as they can remember. Their first date was a bike ride. Bill, formerly a Category 1 racer, has been a contributor to several cycling magazines and is widely acknowledged as an expert on road bikes and cycling history. Since his father gave him a small 1-speed English lightweight bicycle when he was 5 years old, Bill has been in love with everything about bikes. Carol, a former college biology instructor is also an accomplished rider, having cycle-toured extensively. The McGanns have owned several bicycle shops, and started Torelli Imports, a distributor of high-performance cycle equipment. Today they own McGann Publishing, LLC, publishing and writing books about cycling history.
