    A beautifully written account of bicycle racing in American history

    We may think of bicycle racing as primarily a European sport, but in fact the United States has a proud history of bike racing. That history is told in the new edition of Peter Joffre Nye’s Hearts of Lions: The History of American Bicycle Racing (University of Nebraska Press). Our stateside bicycle authority Duncan Jamieson is thoroughly impressed with Nye’s voluminous tome, but with strong reservations regarding the place of women racers in his book.
