Publisher's Summary

Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder is an anthology of 30 articles written by an amateur cyclist over a period of 10 years. The collection exhibits the madness that engulfs those who descend into cycling obsession, celebrating the average cyclist living in a world defined by the pros. The writings range from fanciful musings concerning the Tao of singlespeeding to lengthy descriptions of end-to-end rides in Britain and Ireland. Mountain biking, road cycling and all sorts of other cycling events are chronicled along the way. Each is written in a lighthearted style designed to bring the reader into the author's world which is often littered with incident and humour. The listener will find a loose ticklist of events to ride, bikes to own and challenges to take on, each described in the author's own inimitable style.

    Story
    "Thoroughly good listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder to be better than the print version?

    I prefer an audio book so I can listen as I drive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    many good and varied stories, often told with humour and a real understanding of what its like to be a cyclist of any discapline


    Have you listened to any of Simon Whistler’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Takes a bit of getting used to. Sounds a bit like Julien Clarey!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out load a few times and I really connected with some of the sories and was facilnated by the ones featuring discaplines I haven't done


    Any additional comments?

    Very, very enjoyable listen, highly recommended.

    I have not read the print version yet but will do soon.

    "Engaging and well worth the listen"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of daves injured friend is memorable as was his ride over the ridge in wiltshire


    Any additional comments?

    You need to get into the flow of the book and past the first foundation chapters but the stories resonate and have stayed with me since listening.

    "Waist of a credit"

    Oh what an awful audio book. full of cliches and read by someone who sounds like Julian Clary.The whole thing sounds like it was done on the cheap and recorded in the toilet..! I stopped listening after a few chapters and deleted this poor book from my list.

    Save your money...!

    "An interesting book"

    This is an interesting book, but it's about an amateur rider with a passion for cycling and an additional for the latest it thing for cycling, Interesting from the point it gives an insight into one man's passion gone over board. I guess there are worst things to be addicted to, but it seems to be quite expensive for this individual

    "Oh yes, I know all about that...."

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who has read/listened to this and thought....."OMG, he's written about my life!" This is a laugh out loud - bit embarrassing when you're on public transport - kind of book about the joys of cycling...or should that be the obsession of cycling? Well written/read and oh, so true! Definitely worth a read if you're still in denial about your cycling habits!

    "Varied"

    A good range of entertaining articles on the many facets of cycling. Narration not quite so good but tolerable. Any cyclist should enjoy them.
