Abstract:
The thesis explores the early history of bicycle racing and the related activity of recreational cycling, in particular the evolving symbiotic relationships, material and discursive, between participants and the makers of the sport's specialized tool - the bicycle itself The dissertation presents an historical, social-constructionist account of the emergence of cycling as both a sport and a recreation between 1867 and 1903, focusing on Britain, but with comparative reference to France and the United States.
