Author David Herlihy is visiting California to promote his book The Lost Cyclist this week.
Frank Lenz disappeared while circumnavigating the globe by bicycle on new-fangled pneumatic tires. Herlihy gives a fascinating and in-depth account of Victorian Era bike culture and follows Lenz on his journey until his disappearance. Another adventuresome cyclist of the day, William Sachtleben, is commissioned to search for Lenz’s remains and solve the riddle of his disappearance in the far flung regions of the world.
David Herlihy’s The Lost Cyclist chronicles the adventures of Lenz and Sachtelben. Herlihy will be at these locations this week to read excerpts from his book and talk about Lenz and his round the world bike trip.
