5.0 out of 5 stars A literate cycling book!, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One More Kilometre and We're in the Showers (Paperback)
If you are interested in cycling and are also literate it can be tough, most of the books are barely literate and move from cliché to cliché faster than most of us can pedal.
This one is different: Tim Hilton was an art critic, I did not like his art critism but it was literate, but on cycling he shows his real passions. A strange mix of some rather partial biography, a history of the continental tours, and clubman law and life in very provincial England. This man understands continental cycling, much helped by his fluency in French and leftish upbringing that gave him access to the continental working class for whom cycle sport was a passion.
