The Hour - a funny and revealing read,
This review is from: The Hour (Paperback)
I've read a lot of books about cycling - this is definitely one of the better ones. The book will obviously appeal to cycling enthusiasts but is also written in a style that can be enjoyed by non-cyclists.
Michael Hutchinson charts his sometimes erratic progress in pursuit of the ultimate cycling record - "How far can you ride in one hour?". He also takes us back to examine the lives of previous holders of this blue riband event of the cycling world - often with a wry smile at the unusual characters that have been involved.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. A great read!
