Goggles & Dust: Images from…

$16.95

Goggles & Dust. Drawn from the one of the world’s finest collections of cycling artifacts, Goggles & Dust collects over 100 stunning photographs from competitive cycling’s heyday. Spanning the 1920s and ’30s, Goggles & Dust: Images from Cycling’s Glory Dayscelebrates the grit and determination of the bicycle racing pioneers who established the records, traditions, and distinct flavors of Europe’s most hallowed races.

The spirit of these hardy competitors was perhaps matched only by the resolve of the remarkable photographers who prevailed in all imaginable conditions, situations, altitudes and latitudes to capture unforgettable prints of the racers at work and play. From Alpine panoramas to hair-raising crashes and idyllic roadside celebrations, the gorgeous restored photographs in Goggles & Dust—most unseen since their original publication in the newspapers and magazines of the day—provide an indelible and delightful record of a more carefree and adventurous time.

Includes original photographs from the Horton Collection: Ottavio Bottechia, Eugene Christophe, Henri Pelissier, Andre Leducq, Antonin Magne, Romain Maes, Nicolas Frantz, Octave Lapiz, Roger Lapebie, Rene Vietto, and dozens more pioneers of cycling.

Hardcover with 100 photographs throughout.

A sad day for cycling, a legend amongst us has passed on. For 46 years Tony Tom and his "A Bicycle Odyssey" shop in Sausalito, California offered cycling fanatics the finest from around the world.

Join us on December 12th for a memorial ride around Paradise Drive in Tiburon. Meet at Dunphy Park across from A Bicycle Odyssey and be ready to leave at 10:00am. A celebration of Tony's life will follow afterwards back at the park. There's a new gofundme campaign to care for his mom Ruby and if you would like to contribute the link will appear after you sign up below.
