Product Description:
From 1877 to 1896, the popularity of bicycles increased exponentially, and Boston was in on it from the start. The Boston Bicycle Club was the first in the nation, and the city's cyclists formed the nucleus of a new national organization, the League of American Wheelmen. The sport was becoming a craze, and Massachusetts had the largest per capita membership in the league in the 1890s and the largest percentage of women members. Several prominent cycling magazines were published in Boston, making cycling a topic of press coverage and a growing cultural influence as well as a form of recreation.

Lorenz J. Finison explores the remarkable rise of Boston cycling through the lives of several participants, including Kittie Knox, a biracial twenty-year-old seamstress who challenged the color line; Mary Sargent Hopkins, a self-proclaimed expert on women's cycling and publisher of The Wheelwoman; and Abbot Bassett, a longtime secretary of the League of American Wheelman and a vocal cycling advocate for forty years. Finison shows how these riders and others interacted on the road and in their cycling clubhouses, often constrained by issues of race, class, religion, and gender. He reveals the challenges facing these riders, whether cycling for recreation or racing, in a time of segregation, increased immigration, and debates about the rights of women.

Product Description:
A revised and expanded edition of the 1978 classic, this book offers cyclists informative, accurate, and descriptive directions for a wide variety of bicycle routes in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. Whether you are a weekend recreational rider or an experienced cyclist looking for a challenging hill-climbing excursion, Bicycle Touring in the Pioneer Valley will be a welcome addition to your two-wheeled trip.

Nancy Jane decided to write this book while working on a second B.S. degree in Natural Resource Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. When she sought to acquaint herself with her surroundings, she could find no single source of information about bicycle routes in the Pioneer Valley and so began researching on her own. After studying the area, she designed and mapped out seventeen basic tours, which vary in length from 5.5 to 30 miles. For this revised edition, she has retraced every route, updated the maps, added a new tour, and provided other useful information.

In all, there are more than sixty possible rides that cover the geographic area bounded by Greenfield to the north, Holyoke to the south, Quabbin Reservoir to the east, and Westhampton to the west. Detailed tour maps, a short geological history of the area, and a helpful appendix that provides detailed information about parks, museums, wildlife sanctuaries, area bicycle clubs, and suppliers of U.S. Geological Survey maps make this book not only an excellent bicycling guide but also an unusual directory of things to do and see in the Pioneer Valley.
