Product description


The strongest chord is struck when Irvine points out how an ordinary bicycle with its simple mechanisms still does so much for many of us, in a world of otherwise baffling technological advances. There, if anywhere, may the bicycle help us achieve balance in the modern world. --


Reflective, uplifting and a joy to read. --

The Good Book Guide

This impeccably
presented book
from publisher, philosopher and
cyclist Ben Irvine
is a fascinating
journey into his own world- view and that of one of his heroes, Albert Einstein.
An intriguing blend of auto- biography, historical musing and self-help manual, it s fair to say The Art of Mindful Cycling takes on a lot.
The book largely succeeds because of the fluidity of Irvine s writing, the soothing design and the variety of the subject matter. As you might expect, this curious book won t be for everyone, but if you have a friend of a metaphysical disposition, it could make an entertaining stocking-filler and talking point. --
