In Melanoma: It Started with a Freckle, David L. Stanley invites you to join him on an inside tour of his cancer. You’ll travel with Stanley from the dimly lit and elegantly decorated office of the dermatologist to the fluorescent glare of the operating room theater and back to the workplace as he faces up to melanoma—the only major cancer that has seen its incidence rise since 2000—with humor, humility, and a deep understanding of the disease borne of research and science.
In a memoir that speaks to anyone who has bumped up against a major health scare, Stanley offers up an engaging primer on how to finesse a path through cancer, the boogeyman under everyone’s bed, with gravity and wit and honor.
Since the Tour de France starts Saturday, July 2, here's a picture of the Tour's first winner.
Maurice Garin won in 1903, beating second-place Lucien Pothier by nearly three hours (2hr 49min 45sec to be exact).
Though Garin had the shortest elapsed time in the 1904 Tour, he was disqualified, along with three other riders, for cheating.
We've got a huge database of Tour info: hundreds and hundreds of photos, maps, stories.
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.
