"This book makes me want to stop cycling."

I was sold on this book by the preview, where cycling quotes were read. That was the best part of this book. It was so frustrating to listen to this that I couldn't make it through 3 chapters. Really disappointing.

"Must have."

This was my third audio book revolving around cycling. Enjoyed the tales, and how different chapters were written by other people. Great flow, just a little dry in comparison. It's all about the bike, and the 95 cycling rules were much more my speed. if you are a cyclists, it's still a must have

"Bravo!"

Awesome book. I would recommend this book to anyone who rides... Novice to professional. It helps you to understand the mind of a cyclist.
