Boultings road book full of fascinating details of road races interesting stories and great pictures
When I originally bought a copy of the book, I was going to give it to my brother-in-law (a fellow fan) as a Christmas present — but I absolutely couldn't part with it. The essays are definitely the best cycling companion over the barren winter months, and it's made me really excited for the TDU in the new year. Cannot recommend it highly enough
