Have you ever wondered why the leader's jersey at the Tour de France is yellow? Where Graeme Obree's record-breaking bike 'Old Faithful' got its nickname? Or the role of bloomers in bicycle design?

Find out in this absorbing and quirky look at the history of cycling and the development of bike-related design through 100 pivotal objects.  Charting the journey from the laufmaschine to the Brompton, through the early prototypes and the two-wheeled toys of the aristocracy, to the speed machines we know today.

Filled with fascinating photographs and illustrations, immerse yourself in the history of cycling - from the boneshaker via the bicycle powered washing machine, to cuddly lions and ball bearings.
