'Nobody evokes the transformative joy of cycling the way Fournel does here ... magical' - Herbie Sykes


"I ride to rest and to tire myself out; I ride to do myself good and to do myself harm"

... one of the many cycling paradoxes explored in this unique and delightful book.

"I've never got over this miracle"
