Book of the week

Bicycle History

"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 and Kindle ebook versions. You can get all the info on the book here.

Or go straight to Amazon to get the book here.

Jacques Anquetil

Each week I'm posting a photo of a winner of the Tour de France, in year order.

For this week, here is 1963 Tour de France winner Jacques Anquetil (partly obscured, riding on the edge of the road) riding next to Raymond Poulidor (in front) and Federico Bahamontes.

This was Anquetil's fourth Tour victory and it was a demonstration of how completely Anquetil could master his competition when he was at the top of his game.

The Tour organization wanted to reduce Anquetil's chances of dominating the Tour and so reduced the time trialing from 111 kilometers in 1962 to 79. Also, to help the purer climbers, stage finishes were moved closer to the crests of the final climbs.

Didn't work. Previously Anquetil's climbing skills had been thought marginal. It was said he couldn't be dropped and could drop no one. In this Tour Anquetil gave a master class in climbing as well as time trialing.

We have results for every stage of every edition of the Tour de France. You can find them here.

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.
