Bicycle Lore

Gene Bisbee’s got another story about the history of bicylcing. He refers to David Herlihy who worte “The Lost Cyclist”. I happen to have a copy of that book if anyone is interested.–Corrie

Bicycle historian David Herlihy (“The Bicycle” and “The Lost Cyclist”) recently wrote about Birchmore’s adventures at Smithsonian.com: “Fred Birchmore’s Amazing Bicycle Trip Around the World.”

He started his bicycle travels when he bought Bucephalus at a bike shop in Germany. He’d gone there to study international law after earning a law degree at the University of Georgia.
