A typical cycling autobiography.
on 1 August 2012
I thought this book by Stephen Roche was okay but found it very slow to get going and I was fairly glad when I had finished it. Like most cyclists' biographies and autobiographies it is really just a recollection of all the races they took part in, pedal by pedal and that can become a little tedious. The glimpses of his family life were just that glimpses and I feel it would have been a more interesting story if there had been more personal/family content, but that's not what he intended obviously. You have to be a really dedicated cyclist or cycling fan to fully appreciate this book but having said that good on him for having written it himself.
