First published in 1884, this volume constitutes a detailed and practical treatise on the health benefits of cycling and how to benefit from them. Although old, it contains much in the way of timeless information, making it of considerable utility to modern readers with an interest in healthy living and cycling. With chapters on everything from diet to sleep and drunkenness on the road, this vintage handbook is not to be missed by cycling enthusiasts and collectors of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: "What is Meant by Health", "Health of the Skin", "Baths and Bathing", "The 'Only Middling' Class", "The Morning Tub", "Rules for Sea-side Enjoyment", "Diary of an Old Physician", "Dyspepsia", "Errors in Diet", "The Man and the Stomach", "Vegetables-Salads", "Remarks for Diet", "Alcoholic Stimulants and Temperance", "A Comparison", et cetera. 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.
