    This was something I found at my local public library. This is a publication of Roadcycling UK which tells you several things immediately - the focus is almost entirely on road cycling (and not any other kind of cycling) and it is written with UK cycling history featured heavily.

This is a publication of Roadcycling UK which tells you several things immediately - the focus is almost entirely on road cycling (and not any other kind of cycling) and it is written with UK cycling history featured heavily. There are some infographics at the beginning about "bike tech" that are useful in the way I would think of being a "guide to cycling" but after that it is largely about different kinds of professional racing and the history of some of the most famous races, particularly (but not only) where there was exceptional performance of a British cyclist. If you aren't interested in professional racing there isn't much here of interest. At all. I find it somewhat sad to see in print that with the disqualification of Armstrong, once again Greg LeMond is the only American to have won the Tour de France. As a book for a public library in the US, I don't think this is a very good selection. Oh well.

    I imagine that someone had an idea for a huge magnum opus of cycling starting from the basics and heading off into the wide yonder. After putting together some basic notes they got bored and decided to start covering some of the classic races (terrain, history personalities, etc)... and then gave up. Two days later the notes land in the graphics department - a couple of young graduates pull together a 'granny tricker' just in time for Christmas and with the important word 'Info-Graphic' included I imagine that someone had an idea for a huge magnum opus of cycling starting from the basics and heading off into the wide yonder.

Here is little to interest anyone in the target market and there is no Information contributed by the Graphics (excepting some small gradient and elevation graphs of classic climbs). From shop to wrapping paper to charity shop obscurity.
