Through the years, many great poets have penned odes to the bicycle or to the experience of riding free on this elegant machine. Now Justin Belmont gathers them all in one splendid, authoritative collection. He selects not only the best of 100 years of bicycle poetry, but also dozens of new bicycle poems published here for the first time. Includes work by Stan Rice, C.K. Williams, James Laughlin, Bruce Weigl, Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Rita Dove. With bicycle line drawings and photos throughout, this will make a lovely gift for all bicycle-lovers.
Justin Belmont is a former editor of Bicycling Magazine. He is a lifelong writer, poet, scholar and cyclist.
