Ten Poems about Bicycles covers many different aspects of the bicycle, from its early history, through some teething problems (mostly in the brakes department) and on to the vivid and often magical thoughts, affection and loyalty that bicycles have inspired in their riders and in poetry.
Includes ‘Banjo’ Paterson’s bone-shaking classic, ‘Mulga Bill’s Bicycle’, as well as poems by Michael Donaghy, Derek Mahon and Connie Bensley’s tale of obsession, collision and bent treadles, ‘Wheel Fever’. To echo Robert McCrum in The Observer, our aim here is to bring ‘sweetness and light to romantic pedal pushers everywhere.’
