I’m Aaron Cripps and I’ve been a fan of cycling ever since a friend encouraged me to watch Le Tour de France many years ago. Within a few days I’d bought a second hand Raleigh and have been cycling ever since. Beginning to ride a bike coincided with my decision to go to university to read for a history degree and these pages give me an opportunity to indulge both interests.
The history of cycling is full of passion, intrigue, drama, and tragedy, of technical innovation and of human interest. There are many great stories, some well known, others less so, some perhaps forgotten. It is my hope to bring some of these stories to life in these pages.
