On the Road Bike: The Search For a Nations Cycling Soul (Yellow Jersey Cycling Classics)
‘British cyclist. It used to be an oxymoron, a sort of silliness. Like French Cricket’
Ned Boulting has noticed something. It’s to do with bikes. They’re everywhere. And so are their riders. Some of these riders seem to be sporting sideburns and a few of them are winning things. Big things. Now Ned wants to know how on earth it came to this. And what, exactly is 'this'.
In On the Road Bike, Ned Boulting asks how Britain became so obsessed with cycling. His journey takes him from the velodrome at Herne Hill

Don't expect to read a better sports book this year. Funny, serious, quirky, hard hitting.
Brendan Gallagher Quirky, insightful, soulful. Could be subtitled 'cyclists are odd - discuss'
