"Cycling for Health and Pleasure" presents the reader with a detailed and accessible guide to cycling, with chapters on learning to cycle, preventing accidents, appropriate attire, etiquette, touring, and much more. Both a fascinating insight into cycling a hundred years ago and a timeless handbook for modern cyclists, this volume will be of considerable utility to beginners and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage sporting literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Cycling for Health", "Learning", "Riding and Touring", "Accidents, and their Prevention", "Correct Pedaling", "Speed and Gearing", "Training", "Cycling Costume", "Practical Points", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the History of the Bicycle.
