Wheel Fever is about the origins of bicycling in Wisconsin and why those origins still matter. From the velocipede era to the crashing end of first bicycle boom, the authors analyze the impassioned debate over who should be allowed to ride, where they could ride, and even what they could wear.
“Wheel Fever gives an excellent overview of bicycle development during a crucial period when the curious two-wheeler was still vying to prove its lasting value.”
— David Herlihy, From the foreword
