    Carlton Reid has provided and excellent history of cycling advocacy around the world and why Dutch cycling is coveted as a model While a bit of a slow read at times for me it is quite detailed it is a fascinating one The photos and images collected are well selected and provide a good visual of the colourful history of cycling This focuses on cycling by people Not sport cycling.
