Item description for The Bicycle: The Myth and The Passion by Francesco Baroni...

This handsomely illustrated volume traces the evolution of the bicycle and spotlights landmarks in its illustrious history. From the first sketches in the 1490s by a student of Leonardo da Vinci to the High Wheel Bicycles that had their heyday in the 1880s, hundreds of archival photographs and illustrations depict the features of these and other early ancestors of the modern bicycle, accompanying a text that vividly recreates the excitement of each new innovation. Documenting the advent of ball bearings and pneumatic tires, the development of high-tech racing bicycles and state-of-the-art all terrain bikes with waffle tread tires and heavier frames, The Bicycle examines the models and components that have been the fulfillment of the dreams of visionary inventors. Through an engaging text and vibrant graphics, readers will meet the key players in the world of cycling and gain a newfound appreciation for the colorful history of the bicycle.
An enthusiastic cyclist, freelance writer Francesco Baroni logs in thousands of miles each year and has ridden in cycling competitions around the world. He has researched the history and technological evolution of the bicycle and has published several books that explore these subjects in depth. Felice Gimondi was the winner of several world champion tours, Tour de France, and Giro d'Italia, and is the preeminent cyclist in Italy today.
