Summary

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.With its unbroken history, the Anfield Bicycle Club's story is of great interest to cycling enthusiasts, and everybody interested in sporting heritage. Tucked away in the club's archive, and now brought to light in this book, are extraordinary stories of cycling's pioneering years, and of distinguished service in the First and Second World Wars. Such is the archive's breadth and scope that you can follow the fortunes of the club, its individual members, and the countryside explored, through all the changes of the twentieth century.Spanning the history of cycling, this unique collection of photographs, documents and ephemera celebrates the club's amazing pictorial heritage and paints a remarkable picture from the pioneering years of record-breaking and racing to the present day.

    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
     
    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
     
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
     
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
     
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
     
     
     
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
     
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.
