    Tthis is the story of the life of Vernon Blake (1875 to 1930) published by the Veteran Cycle Club( VCC),. Blake was amazingly talented not just a gifted cyclist but also an inventor and pioneer of early gearing and advocate of technical innovation eg he championed annular bearings long before Harden.

    From an early period with the North Road club he travelled extensively ending up in Provence. Here he met Velocio and came under his influence using the floating chain system for the rest of his life. Blake was true polymath being a painter, sculptor, engineer, linguist, traveller and mountaineer

    There is something for everyone in this book, accounts of his experiment with cycle components, leading to what has been called the first mountain bike, his racing and touring exploits, the story of his most tangible legacy, his War memorials giving an overall picture of Blake

    There are even reproductions of some very rare Pattersons set in France. This is the first time the full story of his life has been told, the text complemented with a number of Blake’s articles for Cycling.
