The Amazing Anfielders: An Illustrated History of the Anfield Bicycle Club
As one of the oldest cycling clubs in the world, the ‘Anfield’ has an amazing history. The early members in the 1880s and 1890s helped shape competitive long-distance cycling and time trialling. Founder members included George Pilkington Mills, the greatest cyclist of his day. He held Land’s End to John O’Groats records on various machines, won the first Bordeaux to Paris race and inspired the Tour de France. Others included Lawrence Fletcher, who ensured the survival of cycle racing on UK public roads into the twentieth century; John Houlding, the ABC’s second president and father of Liverpool Football Club; J. D. Siddeley (Lord Kenilworth), motor car and aircraft manufacturer; D. C. Rowatt, owner of Liverpool’s main tobacco-importing business; W. P. Cook, national cycling administrator and fund-raiser; and the cycling journalist W. M. Robinson (‘Wayfarer’), who inspired a generation of cyclists in the 1920s.
