Bicyce History

James Witherell has been collecting information about cycling history for decades. File cards, each with it own vital, odd, interesting or strange tidbit of cycling lore, fill box after box in his home in Maine.

Witherell arranged this trove of information chronologically and the result is a clear picture of cycling culture and the advance of bicycle technology. Reading Bicycle History is like eating peanuts. It's almost impossible to stop.

Witherell has given particular attention to the Tour de France. Each year has a section devoted to the French national tour.

Thomas Voeckler

To this writer, easily the most exciting rider of the first two decades of the 2000s was Frenchman Thomas Voeckler.

In the picture above he's descending in stage two of the 2013 Critérium du Dauphiné.

Voeckler took wild chances, going on long, seemingly hopeless breaks. He would descend dangerous mountain roads at incredible speeds without fear. All this while making terrible faces, often with his tongue stuck out. His competitors ignored him at their risk.

He proved his ability and daring in the 2004 Tour de France. Participating in a successful break (while wearing the French champion's jersey) in the fifth stage gave him the yellow jersey. He kept it for ten stages, finally surrendering it to Lance Armstrong after a hard day in the Alps.

2011 was his best year. After a terrific spring campaign, he took the yellow jersey in the ninth stage of the Tour de France. He didn't surrender it until stage 19's Alpe d'Huez mountaintop finish.

The 2017 Tour de France was his final race.

For more, we have a Thomas Voeckler photo gallery.

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.
