Hilarious and entertaining to read "Velosophy"
on February 17, 2014
Don't expect another "How-to" guide to ride a bicycle, training for the next big competition, or fixing your bike here. This book is almost all about what Grant Petersen coined as "Velosophy". I read through it in one Saturday afternoon and evening and had a blast, causing startling looks from my wife and neighbors because I was constantly LOL-ing by myself while staring on a little tablet [I got the Kindle Version]. Among other things I found out that I am an "Urban Lone Wolf" bike rider with a little bit of "Retro-grouch" in the mix :-) To find out in which biker category you belong (and much more) I recommend to read this book.
"Velosophy", as well as the kind of humor expressed by the author, might not be everybody's 'cup of tea'. Fortunately Amazon has a "look in" feature on most of the books and also delivers a free sample into your Kindle. I recommend to do that, and if you enjoy what's in the sample you also will enjoy reading the whole book. Very entertaining with bits of rather unusual information, especially concerning early biking history of the U.S.!
