This book was an effort, based on contributions from a number of sport journalists and historians, to chart the history of bike racing in America, its demise with the universal adoption of the car and resurgence in the 1960s.

About the Book

The book profiles the first African-American racer who was held in high esteem in France and across Europe. Contributors were able to find letters, manuscripts and training logs from long-forgotten American bike racers that show how they kept an underground sport alive during difficult times.
