‘Funnier than anything Lance Armstrong ever wrote. And certainly much truer.’
JACK THURSTON, PRESENTER, THE BIKE SHOW
‘Cycling is a beautifully simple activity that enthusiasts love to overcomplicate. Rob Ainsley redresses the balance.’
DAN JOYCE, EDITOR, CYCLE (CTC MAGAZINE)
‘When I began cycling in the ’70s the only book on the subject was Richard’s Bicycle Book, which had a large section on the best way to kill dogs who impeded your progress. This book is lacking that, but in all other respects it is a very funny and useful guide to the world of cycling.’
