Description:
A book about the dangers and joys of the 'modern' craze of cycling.

Directly you are in motion you will feel quite helpless, and experience a sensation of being run away with, and it will seem as if the machine were trying to throw you off.

The first bicycle was invented at the beginning of the nineteenth century, but it wasn't until the 1890s that the craze really took off. This brought with it the fears, scaremongering, worries and uncertainties that inevitably accompany any new fashion. Women (often unchaperoned and oddly dressed) taking to 'velocipedes'; over-exertion and heart disease; unknown effects on the health and development of the body - these are just some of the fears that haunted the establishment in the late nineteenth century ... but with it, of course, came the joy and wonder of 'the easy and agreeable motion' of this thoroughly modern means of locomotion.

Cycling: The Craze of the Hour is part of the 'Found on the Shelves' series, published with The London Library.
