Video review of ‘The Lost Cyclist’


I’ve written previously in this blog about a fine new book on the pioneers of long-distance cycling in the 1890s. It’s called The Lost Cyclist by David Herlihy, published in June.
The book tells the tale of Frank Lenz of Pittsburgh, who went missing on a round-the-world trek by bicycle, and William Sachtleben, a veteran globe-girdling cyclist who was dispatched to find him. (See March 26 post, “The Search for the lost cyclist.”)

A modern-day touring cyclist who has traveled the globe on two wheels, Darren Alff of Park City, Utah, has posted on his blog, Bicycle Touring Pro, a video review of The Lost Cyclist. It’s worth a look.
By the way, Alff’s blog is also worth a look. It contains information and ideas on the future of bicycle touring; stories and photos from his world travels; products and services that he recommends for life on the road; and lots of information on how cyclists can plan, prepare for and carry out their own global travel adventures.
