Covering interesting and varied philosophical terrain, Cycling - Philosophy for Everyone explores in a fun but critical way the rich philosophical, cultural, and existential experiences that arise when two wheels are propelled by human energy.

Thanks for giving insight on varieties of the cycling experience I might otherwise never have known and thoughts to think about along the way! This book has inspired me to ride my bike across North Carolina.
I have a primary love of music and pretty much an insatiable curiosity of history, art, science, current affairs, and all things bicycling.
Not only for gear heads.
This book goes a long way in explaining why we ride bikes and can be so addicted to the activity.
excelente la forma en que se narran las experiencias de los ciclistas. y todas apuntando a tener una vida mejor. muy recomendable si eres amante del ciclismo.
Too much doping chatter and Lance worship. I skipped the Lance chapters...I get it, you met him and love him. These chapters could have been more philosophical rather than more smoke blown up Lance's ass.
I was sold on this book by the preview, where cycling quotes were read. That was the best part of this book. It was so frustrating to listen to this that I couldn't make it through 3 chapters. Really disappointing.
This was my third audio book revolving around cycling. Enjoyed the tales, and how different chapters were written by other people. Great flow, just a little dry in comparison. It's all about the bike, and the 95 cycling rules were much more my speed. if you are a cyclists, it's still a must have
Awesome book. I would recommend this book to anyone who rides... Novice to professional. It helps you to understand the mind of a cyclist.
"Philosophy for Everyone - Enjoyment for None?"
For starters, not spending 30 minutes (and I am not exaggerating) with an overall preview, followed by a section by section preview, followed by further previews. Never before have I found myself screaming "GET ON WITH IT!" to an audiobook.
Anything to with cycling, nothing to do with Philosophy.
I bought this after reading the publisher's summary:" interesting and varied philosophical terrain" mmm and " in a fun but critical way" not in my world. Occasionally interesting, largely very heavy going and dull.
