This book is must reading not only for anyone interested in the history of transportation, in social history, and in popular culture, but also for every bicycle and motorcycle rider who doesn't spend every minute of his or her time with hands on the grips and eyes on the road.
Randy McBee - Texas Tech University
Steven E. Alford and Suzanne Ferriss convincingly lay to rest the idea that there was a simple evolution between the bicycle’s and the motorcycle’s design and development..
Ted Bishop - University of Alberta
Alford and Ferriss are engaging guides to the materiality of two-wheeled culture. Fascinating, and indispensable for the enthusiast.
