About the Author

David Gordon Wilson was Professor of Mechanical Engineering Emeritus at MIT. An acknowledged authority on human-powered transit and bicycle design--and the self-described "father of modern recumbents"--he was also a prolific inventor and an early advocate for a "carbon fee" to encourage the use of renewable energy.

Theodor Schmidt, a Swiss engineering consultant specializing in motive solar and human power, worked with David Gordon Wilson on several projects, initially within the International Human-Powered Vehicle Association. Schmidt was editor of Human Power and is now editor of Human Power eJournal.

Reviews

Full of interesting material to ponder while pedaling down the road.

--Jearl Walker, American Journal of Physics

Bicycling Science ... dispels the mythology that so commonly surrounds bicycle technology, while encouraging the passion riders feel for the sport.

--American Scientist
