Fancy Cycling book review

Fancy Cycling by Isabel Marks cover.
I was up in London recently and browsing through Foyles found this little gem. It's a reprint of a 1901 book complete with fabric over card cover.

The contents are a guide through various different trick moves on your two wheeler. A great tome for old duffers to point out to the young BMX whippersnappers that there's nothing new. In all seriousness some of the tricks are pretty similar to freestyle BMX moves from the eighties. Shredding Victorian stylee!

Originally published 1901 by Sands and Company. Author Isabel Marks. Reprint by Old House Press 2013. £7.99. isbn: 9781908402714
