|I read it last summer and can't recommend it. I only got about 2/3 of the way through the book before I put it away. It was supposed to be similar to "A walk in the woods" by Bill Bryson. Not even close.
If you're looking for a good cycling book though, pick up "The Rider" by Tim Krabbe.
I loved this book and think it is the best cycling books I have ever read. While that's sort of like saying Caddie Shack is the best golf movie, it really is a good read about a guy racing a bike.

|I thought that it was pretty well written and funny in an anti-heroic kind of way. Not the best book about cycling, but a good light read.
A GREAT book that I just finished is "Metal Cowboy" by Joe Kurmaskie.
It's a collection of essays/stories about bike touring by a guy who spent a chunk of his youth taking bike trips across America. Well written, funny, occasionally moving. Good summer read.
