My Life and Times

Bicycling; Its Rise and Development.
“A text book for riders” aimed to cater for the rapidly developing bicycle movement by filling the void, after early books about the wooden wheeled machine had become valueless. With numerous illustrations to assist the beginner, the book is packed with informative chapters on routes in England, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, The Battlefields of 1870, Upper Rhine, Belgium, Germany, Holland, and France – each highlighting the points of interest, hotels, museums, mileage, gradients and road conditions along the way,
The five routes in Belgium take in Antwerp – Brussels; Ostend – Brussels; Brussels – Liege; Liege – Spa; and Liege – Cologne; while the route covering the “Battlefields of 1870” is recommended to link Belgium to Switzerland.

An incredible collection of cycling books. I can’t wait for the Spring weather to arrive so that I can retrace the routes of some of these!
