    The history of cycling, from start to finish. Should be some more detailed info on the link posted above.

    Bike Cult is a great book. Much of it is dedicated to the history of the bicycle, but it goes into many other topics. Also, if you're interested in human-powered airplanes, speed records, or the many human-powered contraptions out there other than the traditional bicycle, it's a great read.

    My top 4 bicycle books:
    • Effective Cycling by John Forester
    • Bike Cult by David Perry
    • Urban Biker's Tips and Tricks by David Glowacz
    • The Immortal Class: Bike Messengers and the
      Cult of Human Power by Travis Hugh Culley

    You have forgotten one very nice addition to the mix:
    "Nerves of Steel", written by Lambchop Reilly. Buy it now or be killed...well, that's a bit harsh. I'll just ridicule you instead. And do it whilst drinking the cheapest ale in the tavern. Losers...

    "Nervesof Steel" is an interesting read but be prepared, it has no flow. The book jumps around like it has been shuffled.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that. Good call. Still some nice insight though. I have another book, all photos, by Kyle Shepard, called "Bicycle Messenger." Very nice piece of art.

    Out of Print. I had Kyle sign and send one to me when it was first printed. There was a release party and everything in SF (which I did not make). I think Amazon has one listed as used, but it is like 192.00 or something like that.

    Columbus, eh? Met 3 messers from there (actually a brief encounter) at the CCC Supercat. Travis is ULTRA hyped about bikes and their place in the world. Nice guy, never messed with him, but I'd buy him a beer just being who he is; Travis Culley-a guy with dreams.

    I expected her to be a better rider I guess......not sure how to put it,I guess Ive just grown accustomed to the gals that ride around here...a couple of em put some of the guys to shame,lambchop wasnt like that....nice girl,but methinks she was more social than working.

    Travis....love his book,and his outlook on what makes cities function.Never met him....you hear all kinds of rumours bout everyone,most are just that.
