Saddle manufacturer Brooks England have been a British household name and an international cycling icon for 150 years. What continues to motivate and inspire this classic marque? With the help of a variety of writers, artists, journalists, designers, photographers and illustrators, this eclectic compendium of cycling's joys depicts Brooks's unique and idiosyncratic view of the wide-ranging impact of the bicycle and its place in the world, alongside their dedication to function, quality and style. While Brooks is, at its heart, a British company, the team explore the bicycle as a worldwide phenomenon that has connected people - the Tour de France luring professional cyclists of all nationalities to the continental countryside - and continues to provide lone travellers with a gateway to all corners of the earth, celebrating journeys undertaken in some of the planet's most extreme environments, from South America's Atrato Swamp to Siberia. Alongside these ambitious projects, the simple joy of cycling to work, the sense of freedom and adventure afforded to all those who cycle for leisure, and the satisfaction gleaned from crafting the bicycle itself are exalted. The result isn't a book about a saddle maker, but a collection of fascinating contributions from leading creatives from a broad cultural spectrum who are as passionate about their work as they are about their cycling.

Being a three-time Tour de France winner and a multiple Sports Illustrated Athlete of the Year is only half of the Greg LeMond story. As adept at racing on the cobbles of the spring classics as he was on the mountains of the grand tours, LeMond rode a full racing season from spring to autumn. His never-say-die spirit also bagged him two World Championship titles and a hatful of podiums at the world's toughest bike races. LeMond was a talented all-rounder, with a reputation as one of the canniest racers of his generation. He was admired by his peers and respected by his rivals. But his story took a tragic turn in 1987: While out hunting, he was accidentally shot. He lost so much blood that his life hung in the balance. Yet his recovery was as miraculous as what happened next, when he came back to the world of bicycle racing to claim victory in the Tour de France in the closest finish in history. LeMond: Yellow Jersey Racer presents LeMond's career year by year. Big wins are documented with unique and exclusive photography. Many of the famous protagonists in LeMond's world - rivals, teammates, and friends - contribute extensive interviews, speaking candidly about his career and his continuing legacy in the sport of cycling.
