Teach Yourself Cycling


First published in 1953, ‘Teach Yourself Cycling’ is a beautiful, lovingly reproduced window into a distant age, where understanding the good manners of the road and enjoying the innocence of the family picnic dominated life on two wheels. Yet few vehicles have changed as little as the bicycle in the years since this book first published. For all that they have become immeasurably lighter and better adapted to a range of terrains, the basic mechanics remain the same – and a deeply recognisable spirit of joy runs through this book, even though the author, Reginald Shaw, feels he needs to reassure his readers that cycling can be ‘a pleasurable activity as well as a mode of transport’.
