From detailed portraits of the icons of the sport, to statistical breakdowns of the greatest road races and potted histories of its most enduring records, this collection of superbly entertaining infographics includes everything you need to know about professional cycling.

Whether it is the tallest and shortest champions, oldest and youngest Tour riders, or the richest in the peloton, Velopedia has it covered. Examining nearly all of the sport’s most intriguing stories, it also includes the most memorable rivalries, heroic losers, most controversial stars and biggest scandals, not to mention the best punch-ups and mid-race mishaps. The eccentric side of the sport is here too, with kitsch kits, the strangest superstitions and most elaborate facial hair.

Charting every generation from the Victorian age to the present day, Velopedia is the perfect book for both the most devoted amateur cyclist and the armchair fan.
