5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good shave, two years worth for under a tenner. What's not to like about them, esp. compared to £20+ for a pack of 8 multi-bladed nonsense from the big names, of which 5p is the cost of the blade and most of the remainder is for the ad campaigns featuring internationally famous sports starts. DE is the best shave going, and these blades facilitate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to read in the evenings during my week following the TdF and wasn't disappointed. It's written in the same casual conversational style that Ned's Yellow Jumper book uses, and it makes for a relaxing read esp outside a tent with a vin rouge late into a french evening.

The early chapters do contain a bit too much of Ned doing the "I'm not good enough to be any part of this" routine but once he gets into the meat of the book, talking to and about characters from cycling's past the book takes off and soars. The chapter devoted to the two Tommy Goodwins is brilliant. I read it twice.

It's a thoroughly enjoyable ramble round the history and background of the UK cycling scene, and would be equally suitable for those who have been part of it, or will be in the future. As a bonus I bumped into Mr Boulting (my mate Ned!) at the end of the St Malo stage of this year's tour, and he's a decent bloke so I'm happy to recommend this book wholeheartedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's red, it's a triangle and it warns road users if set up far enough ahead of the obstruction. I couldn't ask for more, except maybe MP3 and video capability, and a wine dispenser built into the third arm of the triangle. As red warning triangles go this pretty much does the job faultlessly though. Excellent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fine if you're in America, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's written by an American in America for an American audience. You could probably transcribe some of it to a UK setting but unless you need to know how to navigate the US credit scoring system in a US car-buying context I'd give this a wide berth, unless you are American.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous real life account, 22 Jun. 2011
This review is from: One Man and LEJOG (Paperback)
Gotta love these modern publishing methods. The book was waiting for me on the shelf when I rolled in tonight, easily 2 days ahead of schedule (book not me). It's a great read start to finish and the appendii are excellent, especially the costs breakdown. LEJoG is still a lurking plot at the back of my mind so this book is a good nudge, knowing how it breaks down day by day.

Buy it - it costs less than a bottle of wine and is probably more enjoyable. If this chap can go to the bother of cycling from one end of the country to the other and then publishing his account of it, the least we cyclists can do is buy it and wallow in the experience. A superb account that really invokes a sense of actually doing it, rather than just talking about it.
