Bicycle History book cover

"Were the television show Jeopardy to do a cycling-themed edition, Mr. Witherell's book could easily serve as the basis for each of the show's pieces of trivia. Bicycle History is a delightful volume that is as difficult to put down as a great glass of wine. The book is grab-bag of surprises, reminding us of forgotten riders, details lost to time and triumphs of both people and technology. It delivers to the reader fact upon fact that weave a tapestry of cycling history unlike any I've encountered. I can hear Trebek now: 'This American won the Grand Prix de la Côte d'Azur in 1940.' " —Patrick Brady, Editor Red Kite Prayer

Bicycle History is available in print & eBook versions

Henri Pelissier

This is Henri Pélissier, probably the most talented rider to race in the years just after the First World War.

Pélissier was unusual in his cerebral approach to his craft. He might be the first roadman to have trained for speed rather than pure endurance. Like Fausto Coppi two decades later, he took his diet and equipment seriously and was probably the most advanced racer of the era.

In 1923 Henri decided to finish the Tour, no matter how angry he was (and he was always angry). He attacked his teammate Ottavio Bottecchia in stage 12, though Bottecchia was in Yellow. He left Bottecchia far behind that day and took the lead for good.

His abandonment in the 1924 Tour is legendary. A famous writer interviewed Henri as he sat in a railroad station cafe drinking hot chocolate. Pélissier complained of the terrible suffering the Tour imposed in the riders and of the drugs the racers took to mitigate their suffering. "We run on dynamite," he said.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
