"Pedal and Path - Across the Continent A Wheel and A Foot" is a fascinating and entertaining account of the author's seven-month trip across America. From the highlands of the Hudson river to the sprawling suburbs of Denver, the travails and vicissitudes of the author's two-wheeled adventure are here documented for the enjoyment of cycling enthusiasts past and present. Contents include: "Westward Ho! The Beginning of a Seven Months' Wheeling Tour across the Continent", "Through the Highlands of the Hudson River", "Up the Catskills and along the Erie Canal", "At Niagara and along Lake Erie", "At the Big Trees", "In the Yosemite Valley", "On the Shores of the Pacific", "With the Veterans", 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.
