Full of brilliant imagery, genial quotations and latter-day Victorian idiosyncrasies, A Golden Age of Cycling brings to life the timeless and inclusive joys of cycling.

Born in Hammersmith in 1879, Charles James Pope was part of the generation of cyclists who cycled in a golden era, the time of pioneer cycling writer Wayfarer and of the Cycle Club. His diaries beautifully describe the adventures of Charles and his brother's annual holidays and short breaks, each spent cycling from one destination to the next, whilst stopping at various established cycling watering holes for their bread, cheese and a well-earned pint of ale.

Wonderfully written and including some brilliant original photography from their journeys, Charles' diaries describe the feeling of being able to travel on the new roads of Britain without the dangers of heavy traffic, and of an age when time moved at a more peaceful pace.

From the Author:
Charles James Pope was born in 1879 in Hammersmith, London, and was part of the generation of cyclists who cycled in a golden era, the time of pioneer cycling writer Wayfarer and of the Cycle Club.
His diaries cover the 1920s and 1930s and beautifully describe the adventures of the brothers' annual holidays and short breaks - each spent cycling from one destination to the next whilst stopping at various established cycling watering holes for a glass or two of bass.

The cycling diaries of Charles Pope have been rediscovered by 'diaries detective' and antiques dealer Shaun Sewell. Shaun's previous finds include what became the publishing success stories Tommy's War, being the illustrated Great War journals of a Glaswegian shipping clerk (HarperPress), and its companion volume Tommy's Peace (Mainstream); the Sunday Times bestselling The Real Dad's Army Diaries of Col. Rodney Foster (Viking); and the recent Three Men and a Bradshaw: An Original Victorian Travel Journal by John George Freeman (Random House Books).
Book Description:
A marvellous and eccentric celebration of the joys and wonders of cycling at the turn of the 20th century
