‘British cyclist. It used to be an oxymoron, a sort of silliness. Like French Cricket’ Ned Boulting has noticed something. It’s to do with bikes. They’re everywhere. And so are their riders. Some of these riders seem to be sporting sideburns and a few of them are winning things. Big things. Now Ned wants to know how on earth it came to this. And what, exactly is 'this'. In On the Road Bike, Ned Boulting asks how Britain became so obsessed with cycling. His journey takes him from the velodrome at Herne Hill to the Tour of Britain at Stoke-on-Trent via Bradley Wiggins, Chris Boardman, David Millar (and David’s mum), Ken Livingstone, both Tommy Godwins, Gary Kemp (yes, him from Spandau Ballet) and many, many more. The result is an amusing and personal exploration of the austere, nutty soul of British cycling.

Sonderausgabe für La Fiorida Agriturismo - Azienda Agricola Beauty Farm 23016 Mantello (SO) - Italia Via Lungo Adda Andreas Albrecht hat das „La Fiorida“ bei seinen Recherchen für die Buchreihe „Alta Rezia Trailguide“ kennengelernt und sofort ins Herz geschlossen. Das weiträumige Agriturismo liegt im Valtellina, eingerahmt von hohen Bergen, nicht weit vom Nordufer des Comer Sees entfernt. Direkt daneben verläuft der Sentiero Valtellina. Dieser Radweg ist die ideale Anfahrtsstrecke zu vielen Mountainbike- und Radtouren in der nächsten Umgebung. Wenn sich an einem sonnigen Tag vor einem das Panorama des Comer Sees mit der Kulisse des alles überragenden Monte Legnone aufbaut, dann ist dem Radfahrer ein perfekter Tag gewiss. Vor allem, wenn man nach der Tour den professionellen Service im „La Fiorida“ in Anspruch nimmt. Im riesigen warmen Whirlpool des Wellness-Bereiches entspannt man die Muskulatur und lässt die Seele baumeln. Im Schwimmbecken zieht man seine Bahnen mit Blick auf die Berge. Erfrischt und ausgeruht genießt man danach die kulinarischen Köstlichkeiten der Sterne-Küche. Das Buch ist bewusst als GPS-Bikeguide konzipiert. Jede Tour wird mit einer kleinen oder großen Geschichte beschrieben. Dadurch erübrigt sich ein umständliches Roadbook, in dem jeder einzelne Abzweig beschrieben wird. Zur Orientierung gibt es einen GPS-Track, der das Zurechtfinden deutlich erleichtert. Das Buch steht auch als eBook zur Verfügung.

The United States differs from other developed nations in the extent to which its national bicycle transportation policy relies on the use of unmodified roadways, with cyclists obeying the same traffic regulations as motor vehicles. This policy--known as "vehicular cycling"--evolved between 1969, when the "10-speed boom" saw a sharp increase in adult bicycling, and 1991, when the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials adopted an official policy that on-road bikeways were not desirable. This policy resulted from a growing realization by highway engineers and experienced club cyclists that they had parallel interests: the cyclists preferred to ride on highways, because most bikeways were not designed for high speeds and pack riding; and the highway engineers did not want to divert funding from roadways to construct bikeways. Using contemporary magazine articles, government reports, and archival material from industry lobbying groups and national cycling organizations, this book tells the story of how America became a nation of bicyclists without bikeways.

Life Is a Wheel chronicles the cross-country bicycle trip Bruce Weber made at the age of fifty-seven, an “entertaining travel story filled with insightful thoughts about life, family, and aging” (The Associated Press). During the summer and fall of 2011, Bruce Weber, an obituary writer for The New York Times, bicycled across the country, alone, and wrote about it as it unfolded. Life Is a Wheel is the witty, inspiring, and reflective diary of his journey, in which the challenges and rewards of self-reliance and strenuous physical effort yield wry and incisive observations about cycling and America, not to mention the pleasures of a three-thousand-calorie breakfast. The story begins on the Oregon coast, with Weber wondering what he’s gotten himself into, and ends in triumph on New York City’s George Washington Bridge. From Going-to-the-Sun Road in the northern Rockies to the headwaters of the Mississippi and through the cityscapes of Chicago and Pittsburgh, his encounters with people and places provide us with an intimate, two-wheeled perspective of America. And with thousands of miles to travel, Weber considers his past, his family, and the echo that a well-lived life leaves behind. Part travelogue, part memoir, part romance, part paean to the bicycle—and part bemused and panicky account of a middle-aged man’s attempt to stave off, well, you know—Life Is a Wheel is “a book for cyclists, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of such transcontinental travels. But it also should prove enlightening, soul-stirring, even, to those who don’t care a whit about bikes but who care about the way people connect” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
