Just In: Major Taylor, The Extraordinary Career of a Champion Bicycle Racer

A while back, I asked the good people on Bikeforums.net if they had any suggestions on good books about bicycling. They came through strong, with numerous suggestions that I hope to work my way through over time.

This one was the most intriguing to me, though. I’ve heard and read lightly about ‘Major’ Taylor in scattered articles here and there, but this lays out his whole story. I’m 75 pages in and the detail is really quite extraordinary. This is an author who has done his homework and Taylor’s dumbfounding story is personified drama.

Full review is pending.
