I love it! 16 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got an advance copy because an essay by me is inside it. It's a collection of 60 personal essays submitted to a contest (no I didn't win), and they are all wonderful.
As a person who loves bikes this outpouring of love is more than heatwarming, it's almost overwhelming. Honestly, many of the essays moved me to tears.
I don't know exactly what a non-cyclist would make of these bicycle true confessions, but if anyone you know loves bikes you can safely give them this book for their birthday or X-mas.

a good casual read 4 July 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this is a good book If you are looking for an average person writing about their own experiences with bikes. I personally loved it but that was just me. I like reading about others who share the same passion I have.
I Loved It 28 Dec. 2013

Is there repetition here? Without a doubt. However, I have read this book three times over the last nine years and really enjoy it. If you enjoy cycling but also find other people's experiences, thoughts and lives interesting....normal riders, not just world class riders; you just might enjoy this book as much as I. In fact, I do believe it is time for Volume II.

I've read some of the stories in this book more than once. Sometimes when I put my bike away for a while it reminds why I need to have it ready for riding all the time. And why I need more than one bike.

Poor writing, boring 6 Aug. 2007
By Jonker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book collects essays written by amature and semi-professional writers (writer-slash-whatevers) seemingly in response to some kind of a send in your essay and get published contest. Nearly all of the essays consist of some ordinary people writing about the ordinary reasons why they like to ride their bikes in a conventional adult ed creative writing class style.

The essays lack diversity and are short on insight. Just flip through the book and read the opening sentence or two of each. Most are remarkably similar. What might make a passable one-page fluff piece for a magazine makes incredibly dull reading over and over and over again.

Some very engaging cycling memoirs have been written, such as Heft on Wheels and Miles from Nowhere. Bicycle Love does not make the list.
