To many, the racing bicycle is a cult object, a vehicle of dreams, a marvel of engineering and aesthetics. With such enthusiasts in mind, Bike! Is the first book to be produced on the history of the world's most famous racing-bike and component manufacturers. Within its pages you will discover the beautifully illustrated story of the artisans and visionary sportspeople who joined forces to create two-wheeled legends. From the cradle of road biking on the plains of northern Italy to the birthplace of mountain biking, Marin County, California, Bike! unmasks the soul behind names like Colnago, Shimano and Campagnolo. Distributed throughout the book are special double-page photographic features on ten landmark bikes that were the first to introduce groundbreaking technology, from Maurice Garin's Ondiana cycle in the first Tour de France of 1903 to the Team Sky Pinarello Dogma of 2010. Completed by sublime photography and graphic timelines, this book is the most striking tribute ever created to the craftsmanship, precision and speed of the racing bicycle.

Bikie lays bare the true heart of cycling. Every grass-roots enthusiast, keen racing man and elite professional has one thing in common: he loves his bike and riding it. The author pinpoints the source of his love, tracing its development in the individual, how it draws people into a community and then a tradition – creating a whole worldwide culture to celebrate that deep affection for what is a technological marvel and transcendent experience. Great champions, too, are inseparable from their bikes. They merge into them, becoming a composite image, figures of myth. As well as exerting an emotional hold, cycling, in its famous races, also mounts a living proof of exemplary virtues: courage, perseverance and self-sacrifice – gives us, in fact, a glimpse of the higher reaches of the human spirit. There is a sense of this mythical realm in every pedal turn, for once astride a handbuilt lightweight we are put in touch with the greatest riders of all time. Bikie is the story of one man’s passionate involvement, but in its forthright sincerity it goes to the roots of what we all share.
