The bicycle is a time machine, a link to the past. But sometimes the bicycle also feels like a link to the future – not the future we once imagined, the one with flying cars and replicators, but more like the one the Victorians might have pictured: streets crowded with bikes, strange ones of all kinds. The bicycle – cheap, healthy and little-changed in more than a century – is, for Laura Williamson, more than just about sport or transport. Riding a bike brings moments of joy, liberation, revolution and change. From cycling suffragists to the Christchurch rebuild, life on two wheels spins us out beyond well-trod paths to a fresh and fast-moving take on New Zealand.

After two months on board a Russian container ship sailing 15,000 miles across the world, Josie finally arrives in New Zealand with her bike. Over the next nine months she cycles 10,000 kilometres all over North and South Islands while experiencing the wettest, windiest and stormiest year on record. During this time Josie was spat at, shouted at, honked at, and both run off and blown off the road. She got soaked, sunburnt, hailed on and snowed on and was alternately starved and over-fed, over-charged and under-charged. Then there was the wildlife: the possums (both dead and alive): exotic birds such as moreporks (with their eerie call) and fantails (who decided to follow); the ostriches, who liked to chase English cyclists and the harriers, who liked to dive bomb them; the more familiar but no less frustrating farm animals, who provided sheep-jams and cow-blocks to slow Josie down. In Long Cloud Ride, Josie brings New Zealand brilliantly to life. Warm, witty and acutely observed as ever, her latest adventure is sure to delight old and new fans alike.

Cycling Legends is a series of books detailing New Zealand's ten greatest cyclists. The first in the series tells the story of Phil O'Shea, the greatest of them all. Born in 1889, O'Shea's quiet, unassuming persona was juxtaposed by an extraordinary athletic ability. He won every track and road cycling title he set his mind to, during a time when competitive cycling was one of the world's most popular sports. He went to Australia and won their road championships three years straight. After 1923, he concentrated on track racing. Champions from around the world were imported for O'Shea to compete against in front of home crowds. After a long racing career he coached other champions, ran a cycle shop in Christchurch, and continued cycling until he was 90.

40 Years of Cycling Photography represents a lifetime's work for World famous cycling photographer Graham Watson. From Bernard Hinault in the 1970's through to Chris Froome in the 2010's, Watson's photography of the greatest champions and epic races is the most complete cycling archive ever captured by a single photographer. Watson was there when Hinault won his first Tour de France in 1978, and when Miguel Indurain won his fifth Tour in 1995. In recent times, Watson recorded the emergence of a new breed of cycling superstars from Cadel Evans to Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan. Cycling fans will revel in the variety and quality of the images in 40 Years. Sean Kelly's glorious career, as well as other great Classics stars such as Tom Boonen and Fabien Cancellara feature throughout the 300-plus images. Graham Watson began his career photographing aristocracy in London with a heavy old Kodak camera made of wood and glass. He describes the transition from black and white sheet-film, to colour slides, to digital, and finally to direct transmission from the camera in the modern era. Watson has previously authored more than twenty titles, ranging from Visions of Cycling in 1988, 20 Years of Cycling in 2000, Landscapes of Cycling in 2004, and his personal Guide to the Tour de France. In addition, Watson has co-authored coffee-table books with some of the sport's most famous names - Stephen Roche, Miguel Indurain, Sean Kelly, Lance Armstrong and Cadel Evans.

As a toddler, Jeremy Scott suffered from a huge hole in his aorta valve that cruelly denied him the opportunity to live the life of a normal healthy child. At just four years of age Jeremy underwent Open Heart Surgery at the hands of renowned surgeon Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes. Thirty four years later with practically no experience or training, Jeremy took the unbelievably courageous plunge and began a 2 " year, 51,916km bicycle ride that would see him cycle through 29 countries from London to New Zealand. While separate encounters with the Iranian and Filipino Mafia had Jeremy fearing for his life, it was the beautiful acts of kindness offered by strangers throughout the world that will forever warm his heart. While this beautiful story of self-discovery will leave you feeling genuinely inspired, Jeremys stunning photographs from the road will render you speechless in this stunning publication. To view some of the images you will find within this book please go to the following link: The Long Road From A Broken Heart is not only a story about life in the saddle, it is story about the beautiful side of humanity and an example of what someone can achieve if they believe in themselves and have the courage to chase their dreams.
