This review is from: One More Kilometre and We're in the Showers (Hardcover)
This is a book about the history of British Cycling. I am Irish. I don't have any huge interest in British cycling. By logic, this tome should have bored me rigid.
But it didn't. Why? Because it was written with enthusiasm, with passion, with wit, and with a deep-seated love for the joy of spinning two wheels.
If you are drawn to the title - off-beat, light-hearted and original - then you should enjoy the book.
Tim Hilton can write. He can spin an anecdote. His personal memoirs, whether they are about his communist parents, or his days in Paris, are very engaging.
Somehow,he details the history of time-trialling and touring - and the pages keep turning.
Hilton has done a huge service for British cycling. Moreover, he has written a very fine book.
