About the Author

Ellis Bacon has been writing about bike racing for a living since joining Procycling magazine as deputy editor in 2003. He has since written for a number of other cycling publications and websites, including Cycle Sport, Cyclist, and Cycling Weekly, as well as for The Times and the Observer.

A keen linguist, he translated Bjarne Riis's autobiography, Riis- Stages of Light and Dark, from Danish into English, and he is also the co-editor, along with Lionel Birnie, of The Cycling Anthology series of books, published twice a year. Great British Cycling is his third book, following World's Ultimate Cycle Races and Mapping Le Tour.


"Traces the mixed fortunes of the sport on these shores and happily revisits forgotten greats." -- William Fotheringham * The Guardian, Books of the Year *
"Informative and entertaining, Great British Cycling not only neatly sums up where we are now, but also how we got there - and perhaps most importantly - who we have to thank for it. All in all, an absolute must-own for cycling aficionados and new fans of the sport alike." * Cyclosport *
"Tracks the irresistible rise of the sport on these shores from modest beginnings to such great achievements to be thought of as worldbeaters." * Huffington Post *
"Always interesting... much to enjoy." * Brendan Gallagher, *
