Pio X was the first Pope to deal with sport. He met Pierre de Coubertin and open Vatican city to sport team in the first '900s. He was also the Pope who had to deal with the problem of the use of bicycle by priests.

This book starts with a chapter on cyclism, its history, the impact on culture and society.

The second chapter is on technical evolution of the bicycle, from "draisin" and "velocipede" to bicycle.

For the first time, the final chapter is a history on the prohibition of bicycle for priests with some new secret documents.
