About the Author

Lavishly illustrated, comprehensive, and authoritative, this guide to the 1,001 most important and groundbreaking bicycles is the perfect book for cycling enthusiasts and bike experts alike. This latest volume in the hugely popular 1001 series surveys the world's most popular mode of transport-the bicycle. Ever since the nineteenth century, when bicycles first appeared, they have captivated the imaginations of those around them, inspiring great feats of innovation, design, sporting prowess, and healthy and green living. A visually stunning compendium, this book allows readers to trace the fascinating evolution of the bicycle from its early incarnations in wood to the latest racing machines made of titanium and carbon fiber. Never before have so many bicycles been profiled within a single illustrated volume.

1001 Bicycles to Dream of Riding celebrates the designs and individual stories behind the world's most influential and high-profile models from every discipline, including mountain and road biking as well as BMX and track racing. Lavishly photographed in full color, each bike is accompanied by its specifications and manufacturing history as well as insightful text revealing the impact it has had on the bicycle industry as a whole.
