Why the Road Book is a must read

Like his delicate prose on the ITV and Never Strays Far Podcast, this book and its meaty companion volumes are unique encyclopedic works that are must haves for anyone interested in the culture and details of the sport. A unique and wonderful contribution by a learned observer of the metier.

Sooooo good!!!!

When I originally bought a copy of the book, I was going to give it to my brother-in-law (a fellow fan) as a Christmas present — but I absolutely couldn't part with it. The essays are definitely the best cycling companion over the barren winter months, and it's made me really excited for the TDU in the new year. Cannot recommend it highly enough
