- Recommend me a cycling related book?
30th is coming up shortly and I was thinking of dropping a few ideas to the gf to give her some options for a smaller gift (she’s already got me a main present).
Quite fancy some cycling related reading material, perhaps TDF related. Any suggestions for a good read? 🙂Posted 5 years agoWattyMember
Not a fan of the ghost written ‘autos’ I’m afraid, but Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force by Daniel Coyle, an interesting insite. Another thumbs up to Ned Boulting’s How I won the yellow jumper, Matt Seaton’s The Escape Artist (both very well written) and The Flying Scotsman: The Graeme Obree story. (which may well fall into the first category but is very entertaining).Posted 5 years agoroggMember
How Cav Won the Green Jersey, Ned Boulting’s brief roundup of last year’s Tour follows on well from How I won the Yellow Jumper. looking forward to this year’s book.Posted 5 years ago
The Bicycle Book, Bella Bathhurst (for the alliteration if nothing else)
A Race for Madmen, Chris Sidwells – not bad, the conversational writing style got on my nerves a bit, but it does a good job of covering 90-odd years of the Tour.
I wanted to like David Byrne’s Bicycle Diaries, but just found it a bit dull.
Bike Art published by Ginko Press is very nice to look at…LardLoverMember
How I won the yellow jumper
Wide Eyed & Legless – now re-released (just after I paid £30 for an original copy!!)
Slaying The Badger
On Tour with Wiggo
I hate to say it but Lance Armstrong……
Marco Pantani – boring, boring, boring. The guy was a mess, and Matt Rendall writes as interesting as he presents on ITV4 – yawn, yawn, yawn.
It’s All About The Bike – watch the programme instead.Posted 5 years ago
