  • "A must for all cyclists."

    Overall

    If you cycle at any level you surly cant fail to relate to some if not all of the storys in this book. In essence its a collection of short story's written as blogs or magazine articles the author Dave, he has collated these story's and presented them in a flowing narrative that brings you into his obsessive world of cycling, Dave has in his self-deprecating way has produced a superb book which translates into audio perfectly as a very funny listen, its well narrated by Simon together they transport you to epic and sometimes grueling world of road sportive s, local and distant mountain bike rides, The Alps, the lakes, E2E to all-night rides, Singlespeeds, punchers and into the lives of the friends he meets on the way . I was going for a ride anyway but if I wasn't It would have inspired me to get out there!

    Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder is an anthology of 30 articles written by an amateur cyclist over a period of 10 years. The collection exhibits the madness that engulfs those who descend into cycling obsession, celebrating the average cyclist living in a world defined by the pros. The writings range from fanciful musings concerning the Tao of singlespeeding to lengthy descriptions of end-to-end rides in Britain and Ireland.

  • "The ultimate cycling book"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    "The Rider" by Tim Krabbe is well known by cyclists to be one of the great books about road cycling and racing out there. I read the book when it was re-released several years ago and as soon as I had finished I started from page one again and re-read it.
    When I saw that it had finally been released as an audio book there was no hesitation, i immediately downloaded it.
    Now, before I go on I want to stress that this book is without reproach and whether you read it or listen to it, you won't be disappointed as it givers the finest account of a (fictional) cycle race ever put on paper. for cyclists, this book is really unmissable. And this is where I have a problem with the audio version. I'm not sure if I have watched too many cycle races on TV and listened to interviews with cyclists, but Mark Meadows does not convince me that he is the rider in this book. Written in the 1st person, Mark's narration comes across as slightly disengaged from the story. This won't be a problem for everyone, but for me, I felt I couldn't really get drawn into the story. I just wasn't convinced. That said I still listened to the whole audio version and the quality of the writing and story is still fantastic and if you have never read or listened to this book, then I would still heartily recommend it, despite the narrational flaws

    With The Rider, Tim Krabbé has created a book unique in the ranks of sporting literature. He describes one 150-kilometre race in just 150 pages. In the course of the narrative, we get to know the forceful, bumbling Lebusque, the aesthete Barthelemy, the Young Turk Reilhan, and the mysterious rider from Cycles Goff'. Krabbé battles with and against each of them in turn, failing on the descents, shining on the climbs, suffering on the (false) flats.

The two had met five years before while Coyle was writing his best-selling book Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force. But this time, Tyler had something else on his mind. He finally wanted to come clean, about everything: the doping, the lying, his years as Lance Armstrong's teammate on U.S. Postal,, and his decade spent running from the truth. "I'm sorry," he told Coyle. "It just feels so good to be able to talk about this. I've been quiet for so many years."

    Ned Boulting has noticed something. It's to do with bikes. They're everywhere. And so are their riders. Some of these riders seem to be sporting sideburns and a few of them are winning things. Big things. Now Ned wants to know how on earth it came to this. And what, exactly is 'this'. In On the Road Bike, Ned Boulting asks how Britain became so obsessed with cycling. Ned's search puts him in contact with some of the wonderful and wonderfully idiosyncratic people who have contributed to this nation's two-wheeled history.

    Once a Runner captures the essence of what it means to be a competitive runner; to devote your entire existence to a single-minded pursuit of excellence. It has become one of the most beloved sports novels ever written. Originally self-published in 1978 and sold at road races out of the trunk of the author's car, reading the book became a rite of passage for many runners, and tattered copies were handed down like sacred texts from generation to generation.

    Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.
