5.0 out of 5 stars A sure sign that cycling literature has come of age., 18 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cycling Anthology 2012: Volume 1 (Paperback)
Certain sports inspire great writing. For example cricket and mountaineering. Others fail to achieve this consistency, despite the overwhelming popularity of the sport in question. Football most obviously fits this bill, though there have been some notable exceptions of late. This book is a collection of original articles that really hit the spot. Articles really well written, interesting and involving, critical and analytical. At a time when most of the ever increasing number of cycling magazines are little more than marketing exercises, this book really shows that some of the very best writers are now fully involved with cycling. The opening article, twenty eight pages by William Fotheringham on Bradley Wiggins, is really good journalism and those that follow keep up the standard. I believe this is the first of an on-going series; if that is so we are in for a regular treat. As I throw down yet another magazine full of latest ways to spend money on cycling stuff I really look forward to the following editions of this anthology. It brings back the days when the likes of J.B. Wadley could be read and enjoyed at weekly and monthly intervals in 'Cycling' and 'Sporting. Cyclist', days that seemed to be gone long ago. Highly recommended.
