5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read - from the classics to the modern, 19 July 2012
By 
dprs (Bristol, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
I love this. It's different from your typical bicycling magazines. It's literary, thought-provoking and varied - in style, time period and subject. This one has classics from Mark Twain and bang up to date stuff about the nitty gritty of street politics in modern cities. It's more about cycling as a means of travel, a way of thinking, and being, rather than as a sport. A kind of cycle philosophy reader, and a new manifesto for cycle living. When is the next one out?

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, insightful and enjoyable, 19 July 2012
This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
I gave up on cycling magazines ages ago because although I love cycling and reading about cycling, all the magazines seem to be aimed a teenage boys. This is a very different experience - talented writers who really have something to say. There is stuff here that you will be thinking about long after you read the magazine. I can't wait for issue two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect little read, 18 May 2013
This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
Great idea - just what the kindle was made for - lots of reading for £1 good articles that are varied and interesting. Exposes you to some cycling literature that you would otherwise never see

I've been lucky enough to have listened to the podcast since the begining, and happily this is more of the same. There really is something here for everyone.

This was a super magazine cum short novel(s). Lots of entertaining reads from a variety of perspectives and, indeed, ages. I will definitely be subscribing and I look forward to the Autumn edition. A shame that there is not a way to flag up the new edition's arrival to those of us who wish to purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bicycle Reader, 30 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
An eclectic mix of tales centred around people whom have written about their experiences with the machine. A handful of stories from across the range of cycling from professional to beginners giving something for everyone, with a few memorable quoteables and tips/hints to be found in different stories. Worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Promising First Issue..., 18 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
In an age where magazine publishing has often become little more than a vehicle for advertising, it's refreshing to read something with a satisfying density of content, and a reassuring quality of prose. Publications like this inspire you to ride a bicycle, without the distraction of aspirational images insisting that your kit isn't up to the task. I'll be buying the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable and well curated, 18 Oct 2012

What a lovely discovery this was. As a recent Kindle owner, and a recent convert back to cycling thanks to an enjoyable commute, this little collection was just what I wanted to read. Funny, interesting and poignant. Something for everybody among the eclectic collection of essays - and full marks for the beautiful cover image, which renders so well on an e-ink screen. More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Collection, 23 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bicycle Reader | Number 1: Summer 2012 (Kindle Edition)
Edited by Tim Dawson (of Cyclingbooks.com) and Jack Thurston (of Resonance FM's "The Bike Show") this collection has more than a feel of the Bike Show's wide ranging, eclectic remit about it.

Bookended by pieces written by the editors, the collection offers articles on a range of topics, spanning the history of the bicycle. Mark Twain's account of learning to ride a high wheeler (the quip about dogs being confused by attempts to *avoid* running into them will speak to anyone who's cycled in rural France) is a joy in particular, as is Albert Winstanley's account of a ride through Ribblesdale.

For less than £2, this collection represents wonderful value - I'm very much looking forward to the next edition.
