Description

David Herlihy, author of "Bicycle: The History" joins us with his newest two-wheeled tome, "The Lost Cyclist: The Epic Tale of an American Adventurer and His Mysterious Disappearance".

This fascinating account details the journey of Frank G. Lenz, a young man who set off from Pittsburgh in May 1892 to bike around the world atop a new "safety" bicycle, only to disappear mysteriously two years later in Turkey.

Library Journal raves, "Herlihy combines an admirable talent for sleuthing with the narrative skills of a first-rate storyteller . . . Should appeal to most lovers of history, as well as to bicycling enthusiasts. Strongly recommended."
