Cycling's Golden Age.

I know the season is barely over, but if you're looking for something to help you get through the long winter ahead I can't think of a better way than to get your grubby hands on Cycling's Golden Age by Owen Mulholland and printed by VeloPress. It's a collection of stories and images about the legends of cycling after WWII up to the late 1960's. The imagery is taken from The Horton Collection and it's a beauty. The forward is by the great Eddy Merckx. Very fitting, since the men featured in the book are his childhood heroes. I can't say enough about this book so I won't even try.
