On the Road Bike
Ned Boulting has noticed something. It’s to do with bikes. They’re everywhere. And so are their riders. Some of these riders seem to be sporting sideburns and a few of them are winning things. Big things. Now Ned wants to know how on earth it came to this. And what. exactly is ‚this’.In On the Road Bike. Ned Boulting asks how Britain became so obsessed with cycling. Ned’s search puts him in contact with some of the wonderful and wonderfully idiosyncratic people who have contributed to this nation’s two-wheeled history. It’s a journey that takes him from the velodrome at Herne Hill to the Tour of Britain at Stoke-on-Trent via Bradley Wiggins. Chris Boardman. David Millar (and David’s mum). Ken Livingstone. both Tommy Godwins. Gary Kemp (yes. him from Spandau Ballet) and many. many more. The result is an amusing and personal exploration of the austere. nutty soul of British cycling.

In this book. he wrote an entir
