Publisher Comments:

"A delightful Bartlett’s of the bicycle."—Outside

Many things have been said about cycling, from the ridiculous to the sublime. The sport is full of outspoken characters, and they have provided us a treasure trove of quips, quotes, curses, profundity, and humor.

The Quotable Cyclist gathers the best of these into one indispensable volume. This book will provide any cyclist with unending pleasure, and inspiration to get out on the bike. It features quotes from such superstars as Lance Armstrong and Greg Lemond, and from civilians like John F. Kennedy, Mark Twain, and Albert Einstein. With chapters on road biking, mountain biking, winning, losing, descending, crashing, love and hate, The Quotable Cyclist will delight anyone who ever rode a bike.

This is a handy compendium of quotes about cycling. It can be read it fits and starts. It's not groundbreaking, but I would recommend it as a gift for a cyclist who might like to keep a collection of these sorts of witty lines nearby.
