Just seen a plug for a ebook on Kent Peterson's blog.
"The Ride of Your Life is an inspiring book that will get you up off the couch and want to ride your bike. So much of the difference between exceptional riders and wannabes is the mental attitude and enthusiasm to go out and set new goals. This book is filled with practical advice from real people who share their passion for long distance cycling. During the final miles of a long ride donÃt wish for fitness; wish for motivation. The Ride of Your Life is the kick in the pants you need to raise your cycling results to a new level."
- Lon Haldeman
There's a free preview edition, with the intro, chapter one and an interview with Kent peterson. (Kent was the first person to complete the Great Divide Race on a singlespeed and a long distance bike fiend.)
The full version includes an interview with Jill Homer, whose Ghost Trails book about tiding the Iditarod I read over Christmas. (It's brilliant, you should get a copy. Her blog's brilliant too. She's probably tougher than you.)
I'm going to read the preview now.
