Product description

Review

"interesting, informative and engaging"



''rather than sucking the joy out of cycling with the appliance of complex science, this fascinating read instead brings a very accessible new perspective through easy-to-understand language and plenty of images.   There's loads here you can apply to your own riding as well, for your very own 'marginal gains' strategy.'



'a fascinating introduction to the complexities of what we do with the simple bicycle.'



'a handsome-looking, hardback tome, with nearly 200 glossy pages of thoughtfully-laid out text, photos and colour diagrams.' 

'a fascinating introduction to the complexities of what we do with the simple bicycle.'

'a fascinating read ... a great book for the two-wheeled aficionado'
