SPEED: THE ONE GENUINELY MODERN PLEASURE
"THIS REMARKABLE NEW BOOK IS A TRIUMPH" - BOOK REVIEW BY MOTOR SPORT MAGAZINE
The marriage of the internal combustion engine and the bicycle changed the world forever. A bit more than a century ago mankind was agog to the new thrill of petroleum explosions and ever-increasing velocity. This book tells the story of the early years of our love affair with motorcycles and speed, when heroic pioneer racers hurtled into the unknown: in 1896 Britain’s first motorcycle race was won at 27mph, by 1937 the world record stood at a staggering 173mph. Speed: The One Genuinely Modern Pleasure races from Britain’s Isle Man TT and Brooklands to America’s so-called murderdromes and far beyond, bringing to life a unique era, when our ancestors were in thrall to a brave new technology.
