    Loved your piece on bicycles in the London Review. However, when you ride a bike you are pedaling, not peddling: peddling is selling stuff door to door or in the street

    Patrick,
    I came across the following passage re-reading a book I had read a great many years ago:

    “Peddling rapidly, the final image of the Great C extension and the hunter still strong in his mind, Pete guided his bicycle along the curving way that led among stone hills”

    Looks like this famous sci-fi writers (one of the greatest, if not the greatest ever) also used peddling in that sense.

    Let’s see if anyone knows which book is this passage from and who the writer is..
