This is an idyllic chronicle of a three-week-long bicycling holiday in Switzerland in 1896. The author and a companion travelled 1,000 kilometers around the beautiful Swiss countryside, their experiences and travails encapsulated within this profusely illustrated volume for the enjoyment and edification of cycling enthusiasts both contemporary and future. "A Pedaller Abroad" is highly recommended for modern cyclists and fans of classic travel writing alike, and it would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the History of the Bicycle.
