1945

Newman, Bernard (1897-1968).  British journey.  London: R. Hale limited, 1945.  {2806205}

In the spring and summer of 1944 Newman traveled through the United Kingdom

lecturing for the Ministry of Information.  Where previously he was free to come and go

as he pleased he now found himself on a strict schedule which involved fifty to sixty miles

of cycling daily.

1947

“Ragged Staff” [Coley, Rex].  Cycling is such fun.  London: Skeffington & Son, Ltd., 1947.  

{35239494}

Reminiscences of short cycling holidays in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, many

of them on a tandem bicycle with his wife Ann.

1949

Newman, Bernard (1897-1968).  The lazy Meuse. London: Jenkins, 1949.  {2806270}

In 1948 Newman rode George IV from the headwaters of the Meuse in France through

Belgium and Holland to the mouth in the North Sea.  In France he followed the life of

Joan of Arc.  More local history and less of his interactions with local people and with

the events of WWI an WWII in this book.  As an aside, Newman walked the length of the

river in 1928.

1950

Newman, Bernard (1897-1968).  The sisters Alsace-Lorraine.  London: Jenkins, 1950.  

{2207791}

Newman visited Alsace, Lorraine, and the Saar Valley in 1949 on George IV, a BSA

touring wheel.  He found the people mostly interested in autonomy rather than France or Germany, although the French had supported the region economically.  As always Newman traveled lightly and casually, although the Western European Council choosing Strasbourg as its first headquarters, and the East-West conflict overriding the French-German conflict served as the overriding theme.

1951

Tinker, Edward Larocque (1881-1968). The Pennells. New York: privately printed, 1951.  

{4898286}

A sympathetic yet very useful biography based on a personal association with the

Pennells.  Tinker includes some interesting information on their wheeling.

1952

Aronson, Sidney, “The sociology of the bicycle,” Social Forces, XXX (March, 1952), 305-12.

During the late 1890’s bicycle prices dropped sharply.  As people often traded in their

wheels every few years, almost everyone could afford a good used bicycle.

Newman, Bernard (1897-1968).  Both sides of the Pyrenees.  London: Jenkins, 1952.
