    "Inhanced my love of cycling"

    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.

    "Cycling: Philosophy for Everyone"
    If you could sum up Cycling in three words, what would they be?

    Not only for gear heads.


    Any additional comments?

    This book goes a long way in explaining why we ride bikes and can be so addicted to the activity.

    Story
    "This book makes me want to stop cycling."

    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.

    Story
    "Mentally engaging. A great book."
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Excellent.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    Great narration.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
