This thrilling book of detachable vintage cycling posters captures the sport's style and speed throughout the years. Dating from the late 19th-century to the 1970s, this collection features vintage posters from cycling's most iconic brands--such as Bianchi and Peugeot--as well as races--such as the now-defunct Peace Race, the Olympics, and Paris-Brest-Paris. Featuring artwork by A. M. Cassandre, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and other significant names in design history, alongside extraordinary works from lesser known artists and designers, each impeccably reproduced poster is detachable from the spine, ready for framing. The reverse side of each image includes information about the artist and subjects depicted, and a brief introduction offers an overview of the origins, rise and development of the posters. Spanning decades and continents, these striking full-color posters celebrate the beauty of cycling and are the perfect gift for bicycle enthusiasts.

Cycling: A Sociology of Vélomobility explores cycling as a sociological phenomenon. Drawing on extensive ethnographic fieldwork, it considers the interaction of materials, competencies and meanings that comprise a variety of cycling practices. What might appear at first to be self-evident actions are shown to be constructed through the interplay of numerous social and political forces. Using a theoretical framework from mobilities studies, its central themes respond to the question of what it is about cycling that provokes so much interest and passion, both positive and negative. Individual chapters consider how cycling has appeared as theme and illustration in social theory, as well as the legacies of these theorizations. The book expands on the image of cycling practices as the product of an assemblage of technology, rider and environment. Riding spaces as material technologies are found to be as important as the machinery of the cycle, and a distinction is made between routes and rides to help interpret aspects of journey-making. Ideas of both affordance and script are used to explore how elements interact in performance to create sensory and experiential scapes. Consideration is also given to the changing identities of cycling practices in historical and geographical perspective. The book adds to existing research by extending the theorization of cycling mobilities. It engages with both current and past debates on the place of cycling in mobility systems and the problems of researching, analyzing and communicating ephemeral mobile experiences.

In No Dribbling the Squid, armchair athletes--and anyone who enjoys tales of the strange and unusual--get a front-row seat at some of the world's most mind-blowing feats of strength, endurance, and eccentricity. Here are profiles of more than 70 fringe, far-fetched, and frightening sports, all featured in up-close-and-personal photos. With everything from wayward warfare (Japanese mudflinging, team snowball fighting, professional shin kicking) to displaced races (swamp soccer, outhouse racing, underwater cycling, or elephant polo), to toe- and finger-wrestling, chess boxing, extreme mountain unicycling, spitting and hurling contests, city-wide brawls, and recess games gone grown-up, there's something here to tickle any competitor's freaky streak.
