Promotional Information

An entertaining social and cultural history of cycling in post-war Europe seen through the eyes of a veteran racing cyclist. A book with broad appeal -- potentially embracing all those who have ever pedalled a bicycle and all those armchair cyclists who watch the Tour de France on television (one billion people worldwide last year). Has elements of Adam Hart-Davis's extremely popular BBC2 series, surveying Britain from the saddle of a bicycle. Chosen as a Book of the Year in the Sunday Telegraph.

About the Author

Tim Hilton has been an art critic on the Guardian and the Independent on Sunday and has written art history books on the Pre-Raphaelites and Picasso, among others. He has been an avid cyclist for over forty years and cycles at least 10,000 miles a year.

Reviews

'A deeply affectionate mental scrapbook ! Hilton has the skill as a writer to make the subject of cycling fresh and compelling again. Fascinating ! Exuberant' Matt Seaton, Guardian 'An exhilarating work ! just the book for anyone who, shooting past a traffic jam on the way to work, imagines himself wearing the winner's yellow jersey at the head of the Tour de France pack' Independent 'Tim Hilton is a man of sardonic humour as well as high intelligence ! his book is one of the most unusual, eccentric and captivating ever written by a "wheelman"' Geoffrey Wheatcroft, Daily Mail 'A hugely engaging history of the sport' Simon O'Hagan, Books of the Year, Independent on Sunday 'A charmingly eccentric account of his love of cycling, mixed in with a history of the sport' John Preston, Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph 'Hilton is a brilliantly quirky, inventive writer ! A wonderful testament to a life in the saddle' Daily Telegraph 'Remarkably infectious and richly atmospheric; so much so that the effect is like being hoisted up on to his handlebars and swept along for the ride. His enthusiasm drives everything forward at an exhilarating lick' Sunday Telegraph
