The book seeks to shed light on a lost history of professional cycling, which had been a major spectator sport during the early decades of the 20th century. As such, it examines the culture and noteworthy figures of this period in northern New Jersey. The story of the Nutley Velodrome is that it is the final chapter in cyclings golden era. It is, quite literally, where and when the golden age came to an end. It is a lost history, which is why the story needs to be told.
