On the Road Bike: The Search For a Nations Cycling Soul Yellow Jersey Cycling Classics

Ned Boulting has noticed something. Its to do with bikes. Theyre 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. Neds search puts him in contact with some of the wonderful and wonderfully idiosyncratic people who have contributed to this nations two-wheeled history. Its a journey that takes him from the velodrome at Herne Hill to the Tour of Britain at Stoke-on-Trent via Bradley Wiggins, Chris Boardman, David Millar and Davids mum, Ken Livingstone, both Tommy Godwins, Gary Kemp yes, him from Spandau Ballet and many, many more. The result is an amusing and personal exploration of the austere, nutty soul of British cycling.
