“As mesmerisingly beautiful an iPad app as you could ever hope to see” - Stephen Fry
App of the Week and New and Noteworthy cycpledia now has more bikes, more movies and is packed with much more information. This new CYCLEPEDIA offers an expanded tour round many more of Michael Embacher’s unique personal collection of two-wheeled rarities.

Every bicycle is beautifully displayed via the app’s 360º spins, but now the zoom magnifications are in even higher resolution allowing you to compare and appreciate each machine’s fine detail, innovation and design more closely than ever. We also bring you Sir Paul Smith’s personal collection of rare cycling Jerseys, plus unique movie clips in which Sir Paul entertainingly explains his lifelong passion for bicycles.

So whether you are a Lycra-clad fanatic or just interested in the evolution of cycling and bicycle design this is an app to treasure. Sit back, enjoy, and let your fingers do the pedaling.
