On Richmond’s Wheel: The History of Cycling in Richmond is a book that could happen if enough folks get behind their Kickstarter campaign:
For two years, I have turned back the pages (and squeaky wheels) covering over 120 years of Richmond, Virginia’s forgotten cycling history. Now, I want to share this with others and need your support!
Through first hand interviews, old photographs, newspaper images and newspaper accounts, journey back in time to see the first bicycle rider in Richmond. Feel your heart pump riding down Brook Road in 1895 to break a cycling record that likely still stands today. Hear the lingering cheers of 15,000 fans watching a 1892 cycling race. Learn how early cycling advocates shaped the modern landscape. Revisit the 1983 Tour of America and the dusted off memories of the re-emergence of bike clubs and racing in the 1990s.
