Sit back or saddle up as double Olympic gold medallist and multiple world champion Geraint Thomas gives you a warts-and-all insight into the life of a pro cyclist.
Along the way he reveals cycling's clandestine codes and secret stories; tales from the peloton; the key characters, like Wiggins, Hoy and Cav; the pivotal races; and essential etiquette.
Geraint Thomas is treasured for treating his sport just as the rest of us see it: not as a job but as an escape and an adventure. He's been with Team Sky since its inception and is one of our most successful and gifted track and road riders, but Geraint reminds us that getting on the bike still puts a smile on your face and fire in the legs like nothing else.
Funny, informative, diverting and droll, this is a joyful celebration of the world of cycling.

Yes, it's not your typical cycling autobiography. for a start it's not really an autobiography. It does what it says on the cover - it gives Geraint's view on a load of cycling topics through some fun stories.
I like riding bikes!
Even if you have no idea about the cycling world just reading about the life of a Welsh Olympic champion is very interesting.
Recommend this for anyone who likes cycling
Humorous at times, insightful look at performing at the highest level in professional cycling.
The only slight criticism was that it seemed to end abruptly. I'd have quite happily listened for another hour or two.
Yes. Great detail into the world of cycling told with a laugh at every turn.
Descriptions of clothes, feeds, and teammates.
Description of cycling in the Welsh valleys.
Could have listened in one go had i the time.
Not so much an autobiography as a series of snapshots into what Geraint Thomas's life is like as a cyclist. It's light-hearted and occasionally laugh-out-loud, at least for cycling fans
A brilliant listen! Some real laugh out loud moments & a great insight into professional cycling from the very beginning to the heights of success. Nice one G!
Not the usual autobiographical structure. The only information given about his childhood is the statement that he is a proud Welshman and the name of his local bike club.
Geraint explains the everyday realities of life as a professional cyclist and interjects his own personal experiences where relevant.
From describing the excitement of a bunched sprint to the mundanity of training in his conservatory on a turbo nearly every aspect of life on tour in the pro pelotón or as part of the hugely successful Team GB track team is covered.
Personal views are given on the big names in British Cycling; Hoy, Wiggo, Cav, Froome, Sir Dave, Shane Sutton and many others.
