Cycling Heroes cover art

Les Woodland climbed aboard his old Carlton bike to take a nostalgia trip across Belgium and Holland to visit some of cycling’s greatest riders. Cycling Heroes: The Golden Years tells the story of that journey he took in the early 1990s and the time he spent with some of the finest riders from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. 

Rik van Steenbergen, Rik van Looy, Jan Janssen, Wim van Est, Hennie Kuiper and Peter Post were some of the most colorful and dominating riders of an era that produced many of the sport’s greatest-ever champions. In this book Woodland has collected their and other riders’ precious and fascinating recollections, some going back to a time of leather saddles, cloth caps and spare tires wrapped over riders’ shoulders; when screaming fans packed smoke-filled velodromes to see their heroes up close; when a stage of the Tour de France could take more than eleven hours.

Woodland has filled in his portrait of racing’s golden years with the stories of those riders who were either too far away or time got there first, including Fausto Coppi, Louison Bobet, Jacques Anquetil and Raymond Poulidor. Moreover, Woodland is a wonderful raconteur and Cycling Heroes is filled with wonderful bits of bike history and lore that fans of cycling's premier writer have come to love.

Join Les Woodland on a captivating journey back to the golden age of racing.

Here's how to get your copy of Cycling Heroes: The Golden Years

Lauro Bordin and Costante Girardengo

Not a terribly glamourous photo, but this is a 1919 picture of two of the greats, Lauro Bordin and Costante Girardengo.

Since the Giro d'Italia is in full swing, I posted another historic photo from the race. On the left is Lauro Bordin, who came in 8th in the 1919 Giro. his big win was the 1914 Giro di Lombardia.

The right-hand rider is Costante Girardengo, the first rider to be declared a Campionissimo, or Champion of Champions. He won both the 1919 and 1923 Giro d'Italias, Milano-San Remo 6 times, the Giro di Lombardia 3 times and was Italian Road Champion 9 times. NINE TIMES!!

The Giro d'Italia is the month's big race. We've got full coverage, plus lots of historical information, including results for every edition since its beginning in 1909. We've got hundreds of photos going back to 1909 as well.

 

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
