Lois On The Loose


Category: Bicycles
Description: Young and beautiful, Lois Pryce was a rising star at the BBC. Unbeknownst to her co-workers, Lois lived a parallel life as a biker babe with an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. So she packed in her career to ride her motorcycle on her own from the northernmost tip of Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America. Alone. Armed only with the Spanish words for 'caution' and 'cheese', Lois was rather under-prepared for multiple bear sightings, bribing her way through borders, spending a night in a Mexican brothel and crashing her bike in the wilds of Patagonia. She most certainly got the adventure she craved, and her pulse-pounding, soul-searching adventure has already attracted fans worldwide - a weblog that she kept whilst on her travels was receiving more than two-thousand hits a day. Her hilarious, brilliantly written travelog will appeal to anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking-it-all-in and running away to see the world.

Top Gear


Category: Bicycles
Description: Good old Dad and his good old Dad's car. As solid and dependable as the man himself, if a little less balding, Dad's car was almost a member of the family, whisking you to exciting days out, or just to visit boring relatives in distant parts of the country to the chant of 'are we nearly there yet?' Like the man behind the wheel, Dad's car made you feel safe and secure, because it was as reassuring and sensible as he was. Maybe in an idle moment Dad dreamt of driving something rakish and fast, just like in idle moments he dreamt that your Mum was Twiggy, but the demands of family life meant soft tops, hard suspension and anything even remotely sporty were off the cards. Even anything less than four doors would have been wildly hedonistic. But although the family car may not have been the very essence of rock 'n' roll, Dad was proud of it. Spanning the 1950s to the '80s, this is a celebration of the heyday of the Dad car. From much loved family workhorses like the Ford Cortina and Vauxhall Viva to the rakish excitement and playground kudos of the Rover 3500 and Citroen CX, all the great Dad cars are here. Reflecting a time before people carriers and lifestyle off roaders, when the nearest thing to an airbag was hiding behind your fat brother, this is a celebration of simple, honest cars that were as flawed and as loveable as your Dad himself.

Category: Bicycles
Description: Following up on Crap Cars and My Dad Had One of Those, Top Gear celebrates the midlife crisis with the definitive collection of the flashest, fastest, most impractical cars ever to be found in the driveways of otherwise perfectly sensible men. Drawing on the high level of expertise in this area, Top Gear explores the phenomenon of motoring and the midlife crisis, identifying over 50 classics of the genre across four desperate decades. From Ford Capri to Ferrari Testarossa, it celebrates the flashest, fastest and most ridiculous attempts to cover a bald spot, meanwhile offering a profound insight into the complex psychology of a middle-aged man and his quest for eternal youth. Top Gear's Midlife Crisis Cars both rejoices and recoils at the time-honoured tradition of flushing the children's inheritance on something you're too arthritic to get into in the first place.

The Best Of Car Magazine: The 70s and 80s


Category: Bicycles
Description: Growing up as a child in the 80s had its ups and downs - it's perhaps the one decade that, more than any other, begets groans of, oh, what were you thinking? Those 10 years saw some huge changes - pop music went electronic, yuppies ruled the financial world, and fashion was never the same again. Neither was the car. Yes, despite some four-wheeled disasters, the 80s still had plenty of cool cars. The petrol heads of the time lusted after Magnum P. I.s Ferrari 308; they salivated over the Ferrari Daytona and Testarossa from Miami Vice, they watched Back to the Future in cinemas across the country, mesmerised at the sight of the Docs De Lorean (surely the ultimate in customisation?). Other 80s supercars included Porsches peerless 911, the original Audi Quattro (a car resurrected on current U. K. television in the show Ashes to Ashes) and the Ford Capri SLE 71 R driven by Terry Mc Cann in Minder...the list goes on. Now, ' The Best of Car' takes you back to the days when cars were flash, angular and mean. Its time to don the shades and head out for a cool cruise down the strip. Flick through the glossy pages of what became the bible for aspiring car enthusiasts in the 80s - the only motoring magazine that reflected the true age of excess, and relive those long-forgotten dreams.

India Ride


Category: Bicycles
Description: When Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle finished their record-breaking motorcycle adventure around China in 2010, they promised themselves that it would be their last such venture. Of course, they were wrong. Back in the saddle again, Colin and Ryan have set out to tackle the diverse country of India, and they had no idea what to expect! Whether it was monsoon rains, crashes in Mumbai, the claustrophobic roads of Kerla or even a brutal paragliding landing in Manali; nothing could stop these two adventurers as they triumphantly completed a 54 day -- 14,000 km -- motorcycle circumnavigation of India. In an Indian expedition of unforeseen extremes, Colin and Ryan battled the Rohtang Pass in a rainstorm, made a pilgrimage to the most visited holy site on earth in Amritsar; they also jumped off a perfectly good mountain and learned how to make the perfect cup of Indian tea in Darjeeling. If that seems like a lot, all of this was done while traversing over isolated mountain passes, blazing a trail through the roasting hot deserts and battling the insane traffic of Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. In this book Colin and Ryan take us with them as they make their way through the remarkable and stunning landscapes of India. In the end, the brothers had learned what it takes to succeed as a team as they had circumnavigated a billion people, pushed themselves to new limits, and shared in an adventure that most of us will only ever dream of.

Eastern Coach Works


Category: Bicycles
Description: Eastern Coach Works, known as ECW, was based in Lowestoft in Suffolk. The history of ECW goes back over a decade, though in this book we pay tribute to buses and coaches bodied during the sixties, seventies and eighties. Originally formed by United Automobile Services, the Lowestoft operation was passed on to the Eastern Counties Omnibus Company in 1931. By 1969 ECW was jointly owned by The National Bus Company and British Leyland, with the latter taking full control in 1982. ECW bodies were most common on chassis built by Bristol Commercial Vehicles, of which The National Bus Company was certainly their biggest customer, and the stylish bodies graced the likes of the Bristol Lodekka, LH, RE and VR, of which the latter was a common sight still in service across England in to the twenty-first century, some twenty-five years after the factory closed. ECW was closed in 1987. In this evocative and lavishly illustrated tribute, Peter Horex offers a wonderfully nostalgic view of an iconic British company.

The Buses Of Northern Scottish


Category: Bicycles
Description: How many of us grew up saying they wanted to be a bus driver? How many of us actually did it? Peter Findlay can answer yes to both questions. This book reflects the author's interest in Northern Scottish and its predecessor, from childhood through to actually working with the company from their Buckie depot, covering the fleet from the early 1960s through to the late 1980s and including vehicles the author travelled on, drove or just photographed. Buses in the striking yellow livery of Northern Scottish and, before that, W. Alexander & Sons ( Northern), operated for thirty years between 1961 and 1991 across a largely rural area from depots in places such as Aberdeen, Montrose, Fraserburgh, Buckie, Elgin and Keith. In this book, Peter Findlay gives the reader a fascinating insight into those days.

Ayrshire Buses


Category: Bicycles
Description: Long before Stagecoach, Arriva or First Bus, Ayrshire Independents fought it out with Western SMT on the local and long-distance routes within the county. Ayrshire was unusual in the fact that many small bus operators formed themselves into associations to compete against a much larger company. They not only survived, but prospered for the best part of eighty years. This book shows many of these operators from the 1960s through till the 1990s and looks back at a way of life that has changed out of all recognition today. David Devoy uses but a few of his 40,000 images of Scottish buses to illustrate the changing buses and operators found in Ayrshire. There are many fine views of buses from the fleets of A1 Service, AA Motor Services and Clyde Coast Services taken over many years that record the scene for future generations to enjoy.

Kawasaki Z1


Category: Bicycles
Description: This comprehensive book provides the full history and specifications of the groundbreaking Kawasaki Z1. The author describes how the motorcycle became a sensation after its launch in 1972, with its incredible performance coupled with convenience, reliability and practicality. Although pipped to the post as the first 'superbike' by the 1969 Honda CB750 Four, the Z1 came roaring back with extra power and 130mph top speed to knock the opposition into second place. The most powerful Japanese 4-cylinder 4-stroke motorcycle of its time, the Z1 also had excellent handling characteristics and received rave reviews in the motorcycle press. Rod Ker describes the various makeovers that the model received later in its production life and how it was re-born as the fuel-injected GPz1100. Although later superceded by lighter and more efficient designs, based on the all-new water-cooled GPZ900, the Z1 had already become established as a classic and was also an appreciating asset.

Bristol Country Buses


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Bristol Tramways Company started operating buses in 1906 to feed traffic into their tram services from beyond Bristol's city boundaries. In 1910, a branch of the company was opened in Weston-super- Mare, and the company would go on to open its first bus station on the sea front there in the 1930s. Following the Second World War, other bus stations would be built at Wells and Bath. Following the war, the Bristol Omnibus Company, as it was re-named, was under state control and it became part of the National Bus Company on 1 January 1969. In September 1983, Bristol operations outside the city of Bristol itself became known as Badgerline, extending as far as Chippenham, Calne, Gloucester, Salisbury, Taunton and Yeovil. In 1995, Badgerline became part of First Group. In this profusely illustrated book, Mike Walker, author of Bristol City Buses, tells the story of the Bristol country services.

This unique car accelerated Saab into the global executive car market, and was its most successful model ever, with more than 900,000 sold across the world. A combination of attractive Swedish styling, reliability, balanced handling, safety and performance endeared the Saab 900 to loyal owners who kept coming back for more over its long production run. Today, the model that enthusiasts and casual observers immediately identify as the Saab is fast becoming a collector's car, and deservedly so, with good examples fetching premium prices. This book is an essential reference for all the Classic Saab 900s produced. The book covers the design, manufacture and launch of the Saab 900 and traces the various developments, including re-styling and engine modifications as well as the convertible and special edition models from the late 1970s to the mid 1990s. The book also includes detailed tables with production breakdowns and engine specifications. There is currently no single reference-style lavishly illustrated book dedicated to the Classic Saab 900 and this book fills that gap. There is growing interest in this modern-day classic from enthusiasts and investors, and prices for the best survivors are steadily rising. This book will act as useful, concise and attractive single reference point to this audience.

Category: Bicycles
Description: The Alvis company of Coventry were motor and aero engineers who made some of the finest motor cars during the period 1920 to 1967 when car production stopped. There were no independent coachbuilders left and mass production was not for Alvis. Total production was a mere 21,250 and less than 7,000 after World War 2. It is the post-war cars that this book focuses on. In 1996 the 50th Anniversary of the Alvis Fourteen was marked with a 220 page book compiled by Mick Fletcher and Colin Newby of the Alvis Owner Club, still available on DVD, which remains as relevant today as it was then. Twenty years later, the first chapter of this book is devoted to updating the history of the Fourteen with both archive and contemporary photos. The Fourteen's successor, the Three Litre, had a production run of seventeen years and the newest is now nearly fifty years old. The last book devoted to this model was Dave Culshaw's The Alvis 3-litre in Detail. The remaining chapters of this book build on technical and historical detail in that book with both archive and contemporary photos.

Cambridgeshire Buses


Category: Bicycles
Description: John Law has been photographing Britain's buses since the early 1970s. In this book, he takes us through the buses of Cambridgeshire, run by the National Bus Company, which had absorbed the services run in the area by Tilling & British Automobile Traction (who themselves had taken over Eastern Counties Omnibuses). In preparation for bus deregulation, National Bus Company's Cambridgeshire operations were transferred to Cambus Ltd, which was sold and eventually absorbed into First Group. Throughout these turbulent years, John Law travelled extensively throughout Cambridgeshire, including to Ely, St Ives and St Neots as well as Cambridge itself. The best of his images of those times are to be found within this book, telling the fascinating story of the county's bus services.

Swift Caravans


Category: Bicycles
Description: Starting in 1965, when Swift found success with its early models, this book follows the development of Swift Caravans to the present day, where it has grown into a multi-brand leisure vehicle producer. The author describes the early models, which became popular with distinctive features such as the tri-front window. By the early 1970s, the Swift name had become established and the company started to move into the upper clubman market with the introduction of the Corniche range. Continuing into the 1980s with a spirit of innovation, Swift improved its designs with wind-tunnel technology and produced lighter tourers alongside the manufacture of coachbuilt motorhomes. The company continued to expand with the acquisition of Cotswold Coachcraft and later Sprite Leisure, Bessacarr, Ace, Award and Autocruise, plus a tie up with US Airstream travel trailers. The author also covers the latest developments in what has now become the Swift Group, including further brand acquisitions and expansion abroad. Written by an acknowledged expert in caravans, motorhomes and holiday static caravans, this book is an essential guide to a great British manufacturing success story.

Each landmark along the way is accompanied by a brief but detailed description of its history, origins and use along with any other information about both it and this captivating piece of British coastline that you might have thought you knew well - at least until now! With 100 original colour photographs included, A149 Landmarks is not only an essential companion for those visiting Norfolk but a revelation to the Norfolk native; a thoroughly absorbing investigation of a fascinating thoroughfare.

Grey-green


Category: Bicycles
Description: Andrew Meads offers a pictorial history of the Grey- Green company, who operated vehicles from the First World War until 2000. The company was formed by the Ewer family at the end of the nineteenth century in the east-end of London as a haulage carrier. Coaches were introduced after the First World War and the company steadily grew in size over the following years. Many smaller coach companies were acquired, including the well-known Orange Luxury Coaches. In 1980, Sunderland motor dealer Cowie acquired the Ewer Group and, during the mid-1980s, bid to run many of London's bus routes. They won several, including the central London route 24 that passes Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament. The major success of bus operation led the company to purchase some of the country's major bus firms. A decision was made in the late 1990s to rebrand all companies in the Cowie Group to Arriva and so the Grey- Green name was lost. Utilising a range of rare colour and monochrome images, as well as period leaflets and timetables, this is an essential document of one of Britiain's most iconic bus and coach operators.
