If you prefer to immerse yourself into a big story, we’d recommend our 424-page book about Rene Herse. It’s one of those real-life stories that are better than fiction: How Rene Herse went from building prototypes for record-setting aircraft to making bicycles. How he followed his passion and supported riders who embarked on incredible adventures, who came first in Paris-Brest-Paris, and who won national and world championships. How his bikes evolved based on the feedback from these demanding rides.
And most of all, how the bikes were just the backdrop for incredible rides and friendships. Enter into a time when cycling took center stage in his customers’ lives. As remarkable as the bikes are, it’s this story that is so uplifting and inspiring.
The Bicycle Quarterly 8-packs and Rene Herse book are $ 50 each. Or get both, and you won’t run out of reading material (and inspiration) anytime soon! The Special ends on Monday night (4/13).
