Entertaining potted history for the everyman cyclist,

This review is from: On the Road Bike: The Search For a Nation's Cycling Soul (Kindle Edition)
Ned's follow up book is a meander through British cycling history meeting many characters on the way. It also features Ned's own charmingly naïve adventures on two wheels. It has some poignant moments around the lone 'grim faced' pioneers of the sport as well as typical laugh aloud stories - the football ground quest had me cracking up.
Ned has become a sort of ambassador for normal cyclists - not the really serious whippets but the rest of us who commute, use a bike when we can, maybe get out at the weekend.
This is a great entertaining read for anyone even mildly interested in cycling.
