    Default Bicycle books -- article in London Guardian

    Here's a recent article from the Guardian that reviews some of the best bicycle-related books. The summaries are fun to skim even if you don't have time to read the actual book.

    It's not a comprehensive list (I would have included Bike Snob) but interesting nonetheless. I hadn't realized, for example, that the Tour de France was started by a car magazine, and that the founder told riders to bring their own drugs.

    Thanks for posting! I will definitely check out at least a couple of those.

    I just ordered a new bike- and climate-themed book that looks promising: A Hole in the Wind: A Climate Scientist's Bicycle Journey Across the United States.
