About the Book

Written by the founder of The London School of Cycling. This essential book celebrates how cycling has changed the world – and the wisdom we can glean along the way from life on two wheels.

As Einstein once said, ‘life is like riding a bicycle’. In this beautifully illustrated book, cycling expert Patrick Field reveals the lessons we can learn from the world of cycling, including the movers and shakers who created the cycling revolution, the best modern races, chases and riders of the twenty-first century, and incredible stories of people who have smashed down barriers on the road… and beyond.

Once we learn how to ride, we never forget how to do it. This little book brings together over 60 vital life lessons inspired by the bike – from pushing yourself to the limit to learning to pace yourself and the importance of teamwork – and will show you the learning how to ride is, essentially, learning how to live. Packed with tips and tricks for, and combined with stunning illustrations from Harry Goldhawk, this is perfect for seasoned and new cyclists alike.
