I'm an editor for Chicago Review Press, and we are publishing the U.S. edition of a book that just came out from Random House in the U.K. entitled Cyclopedia: It's All About the Bike, written by William Fotheringham. This is a fun bicycling encyclopedia primarily covering two areas: bicycling as a sport and the history and parts of the bicycle. But it has a lot of other interesting entries, including Sex, Drugs, Literature, and Dogs. (Considering this morning's commute, I was sad it doesn't have an entry on Wind.) It's a fun "bathroom" read, not a comprehensive reference.
However, it has a few British biases. I wondered if anyone might be interested in reading it and recommending which entries the author should rewrite for an American audience, whether any entries should be eliminated as being too British, and whether any entries bring up the question--hey, why did he do an entry on THIS and not THAT (THAT being something American). Ideally, you should be well-versed in bicycling history--both the history of the machine and the history of the sport.
