Herlihy ¸ 4 Read & Download The Lost Cyclist Read & Download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Life cyclist on Lenz's trail Bringing to light a wealth of information Herlihy's gripping narrative captures the soaring joys and constant dangers accompanying the bicycle adventurer in the days before paved roads and automobiles This untold story culminates with Sachtleben's heroic effort to bring Lenz's accused murderers to justice even as troubled Turkey teetered on the edge of collap. I enjoyed this book very much until the last couple of chapters The majority is an interesting history of the development of bicycles primarily in the US but also in Europe told through the eyes of three men Two go around the world together one way East to West and the solo cyclist goes the other way West to East For the most part the descriptions of their early years cycling in the US coupled with time spent in Europe and cycling through Asia were uite interesting for anyone interested in cultural history It s fascinating to think that than 100 years ago people were cycling around the world a feat that is still difficult to do todayUnfortunately when the search begins for the lost cyclist the story takes a very different turn Suddenly the reader is muddled in the politics of 1890s Turkey and the US It was difficult to navigate the incredibly detailed play by play without any previous understanding of the politics at the time and the author offers no helpful hints like this role is in charge of this and answers to this person or something like that It s a painfully slow section to read because of the incredible detailed description of events leading to a very unsatisfying conclusionI actually would have felt better about this if the epilogue had provided a nice after summary but the epilogue was really just another super detailed chapter That s not what an epilogue is supposed to be at all I read through one chapter of the epilogue and gave up on the restThe other thing missing from the book Maps Why in the world isn t there a map showing the routes of the two journeys And of the towns in Turkey It would have been incredibly helpful and interesting to be able to visualize these journeys

In the 1890 s bicyclists were called wheelmen The were transitioning from the high wheeled boneshakers to what was called a safety bike similar to the bikes we ride todayFrank Lenz was a wheelman he participated in racing and long distance rides hoping to escape his boring life as an accountant His goal was to ride around the world on a bicycle by himselfHe had watched as William Sachtleben and a partner traveled around the world and he felt he would succeed soloHardship was part of the travel package He took his camera to record his travels and sent articles about what he saw back to the cycling magazine Outing He endured heat mud dogs crowds of astounded onlookers unwanted escorts staying in everything from hovels to palacesFrank Lenz loved riding bicycles he was enthusiastic and headstrong Frank wrote to his mother and reported back faithfully but suddenly his letters and reports stopped First weeks then months went by with no wordHeadlines shouted Frank Lenz is Lost sending shivers through the cycling community and forcing a rescue mission headed by William Sachtleben travelling to the last places Lenz was seenWhat he found was chilling and disappointing He discovered what most likely happened but never found LenzThis book was extremely good Even if you do not ride it is a fascinating story a mystery and a travelogue of sorts that makes it sound like a good idea to ride around your own neighborhoodI received this book from Net Galley and read it on my new e reader Melville for review
