Sit back or saddle up as double Olympic gold medallist and multiple world champion Geraint Thomas gives you a warts and all insight into the life of a pro cyclist. Along the way he reveals cycling's clandestine codes and secret stories, tales from the peloton, the key characters like Wiggins, Hoy and Cav, the pivotal races and essential etiquette.

Geraint Thomas is treasured for treating his sport just as the rest of us see it: not a job but an escape and an adventure. He's been with Team Sky since its inception, and is one of our most successful and gifted track and road riders, but Geraint reminds us that getting on the bike still puts a smile on your face and fire in the legs like nothing else.

Funny, informative, diverting and droll, this is a joyful celebration of the world of cycling.

  • Adrian

    Oh gosh, how do I rate this, well as you can see I've given it 3 stars. Yes I did enjoy it, especially the last quarter, but prior to that I found it too disjointed. I am a keen follower of cycling, b...

    My wife bought me Thomas’ book to cheer me up—long before he won the Touur de France—and to be honest I postponed reading it for a while, through fear of disappointment. I like Thomas for his re...

    3.5 stars. I've tagged this as autobiography, but it isn't really - it's a book about cycling (does what it says on the tin). It does have a fair amount about Thomas's past, but it's all focused on cy...
