Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Fun, interesting and irreverent look at cycling."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    G Force.


    Any additional comments?

    I like riding bikes!

    "An interesting insight into G's world"

    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.

    "Collection of notes"

    Although much of this book provides an interesting insight into pro cycling, there is very little that is revelatory. The book also lacks any narrative, it is more a collection of notes divided into chapters based on subjects
