An uneven collection of essays on a variety of aspects of bicycling, including long distance touring, and cartoons.  The best pieces are by Gianna Bellofatto.

Mustoe, Anne (1933-2009). Che Guevara and the mountain of silver. London, Virgin Books, 2007 {166626589}

Pluss, Linda. Pedaling into the sunrise. 2007.

Shumaker, Peggy.  Just breathe normally.  Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2007.

Out riding with her friend on a Fairbanks, Alaska bicycle path in 2000, Shumaker is hit by a teenager riding a four wheeler illegally on the path.  This near fatal accident sets up a fascinating memoir of loss, anger, discovery, healing and forgiveness.

Zheutlin, Peter.  Around the world on two wheels: one woman; one voyage; one unforgettable journey.  New York: Citadel Press, 2007  {16626760}

Annie Kopchovsky (nee Cohen, 187?-1947) assumed the name Londonderry to travel around the world with a bicycle.  As Zheutlin discovers, she invented much of the story, including the supposed wager, riding little of the land distance, traveling rather by means other than wheeling.  Even though it is not a bicycle journey, it is a fascinating story.


Enfield, Edward.  Dawdling by the Danube.  Chichester: Summersdale, 2008.

Farmer, Daryl (1965-).  Bicycling beyond the divide: two journeys into the west.  Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2008.  {145732863}

In the mid 1980’s as a college dropout Farmer left home on his Trek 520 to explore the west and find himself.  Twenty years later, overweight with high blood pressure and desperately out of condition, he reprised that route, reliving his lost youth and helping to make sense of his life.  A fascinating, introspective journey.

Humphreys, Alastair (1976-).  Thunder and sunshine.  London: Eye Books, 2008.

Jamieson, Duncan R.  “The cycle writings of Bernard Newman,” Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature, XXV, Spring 2008/Sumer 2008.

The Englishman Newman (1897-1968) remains the most prolific author of bicycle travel books.  He rode and wrote from 1934 to 1960, traveling on a series of bicycles named George throughout Europe, commenting on the people and places.  Staunchly anti-war, he weaves into his narratives the destructive events of The Great War and the coming of World War II.

Malusa, Jim.  Into thick air:  biking to the bellybutton of six continents.  San Francisco: Sierra Club Books, 2008. {180757026}

Paris, Iris. Once upon a chariot. Tate Publishing and Enterprises, LLC, 2008.
