Marvellous being a very underused word!
Excellent recommendations. I’ve been wanting to read some good cycling books for a while and now I have enough recommendations to last me. It seems that for anyone who wants to take their cycling to a book level there’s a pretty vast array of options to dive into.
I have ordered Cyclecraft, not because I want to improve my “safe cycling skills”, as they are already amazing, but because I want to see what all the fuss is about. Plus it may be a very good book to review considering no doubt many cyclists who visit here are beginners.
I have also ordered The Man Who Cycled the World because it looks very interesting and I enjoy travelling and The Rider because the Guardian put it as their number 1 must read. As they said “dark and philosophical” sounds like a good combination to me.
I have also launched a page here on London Cyclist with cycling books reviews. I will make sure any I read are reviewed and placed here. I have already added my opinion on 5 bike maintenance books and a couple of routes books so checkout that page and let me know what you think.
If you have any more suggestions for others as to what to read then please leave it in the comments.
