5.0 out of 5 stars A Ride on the Wild Side of Cycling, March 20, 2010
This review is from: Cycling's 50 Craziest Stories (Paperback)
In a sport where professional riders often take themselves way too seriously, it is refreshing to get a glimpse now and then of some of their funny or even strange sides, and this book doesn't disappoint.

While there may be a couple of stories in the book that you've heard before, most of them will be new even to serious students of cycling history, since this book is, for the most part, NOT a retelling of tales we've all heard over and over again. Woodland, who's lived on The Continent since about 1970, put a lot of time and effort into tracking down some of our sport's more colorful, if not always well known, characters for a cup of coffee and a good long chat. A couple of the stories come from Woodland's personal meeting with former Tour de France leader Wim van Est, for example.

In the interest of full disclosure, my book, Bicycle History is also published by McGann Publishing, but, as you can see if you look at my Listmania list from January, (it is March 20 as I write this)you'll notice that I've always been a big fan of Les Woodland, and that continues with this book.
