Cycling's vast history is a fascinating mix of gripping sporting moments, inspired pursuits and a whole host of heroes, hellions and legend-makers.

A Year in the Saddle travels through the calendar year, each day telling a single cycling story: from the death of the great Fausto Coppi, through to the dominance of Sir Chris Hoy on the veoldrome track. It takes in the highest peaks of the Tour de France and the flats of Flanders, as well as celebrating the history of the bike itself.

Cycling writer Giles Belbin brings together the most important, memorable and intriguing moments of this wide and varied history. With striking and beautiful illustrations by artist Daniel Seex, each inspired by the stories told, A Year in the Saddle is a sporting treasure trove of human virtue, vice and cycling trivia.
