Book Description

Like no other cycling book, from no other rider

From the Inside Flap

The World of Cycling According to G is like no other cycling book, from no other rider: a thrilling group ride through the secret stories and clandestine codes, the great names and small detail, the insider tactics, pivotal races and essential etiquette.
Double Olympic gold medallist, multiple world champion and Team Sky superstar Geraint Thomas leads us inside the pro peloton, round the back roads of British cycling culture and into his constantly whirring brain - a place packed with stories of boozy nights with Wiggo and hard yards with Cav, the correct way to shave a man's legs and the remarkable restorative powers of well-made Welsh cakes.
There is a connoisseur's advice (who should do what in a breakaway?), lessons in biking protocol (ever wondered how to pee on the move?) and mandates for good cycling living (never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lie down).
Charming and informative, diverting and droll, it is the perfect companion for anyone who has ever hugged the drops of a racing bike or relished the pros' daring deeds. Because G treats the sport just as the rest of us see it: not a job, or pharmaceutical contest, but an escape and an adventure, something that puts a grin on your face and fire in the legs like nothing else.
Besotted by bikes? Soppy for cycling? This book is for all of us riders happily in love.
