Any recommendations? I've just finished reading Bad Blood by Jeremy Whittle, which was really good. I'm just starting The Death of Marco Pantani by Matt Rendell.

Seconding "The Rider" by Tim Krabbe, it's an excellent little book.

Non-fiction, cycling-proficiency-wise, I can recommend "Cyclecraft" by John Franklin. Lots of good tips for safer road riding.

Am halfway through "The Rider", thirded. And may as well recommend "French Revolutions" by Tim Moore for empathy and laffs, and Paul Kimmage's "Rough Ride".

Heh I know - I started reading it while in Wales after Xmas and it was pretty much a social weekend so I only got a few pages snatched here and there. I picked it up yesterday and couldn't remember where I'd got to :/

two years pass...

I'm about two-thirds of the way through 'Pedalare, Pedalare' by John Foot - the story of Italian cycling. I read 'Calcio' (also by him) about five years ago (the story of Italian football). Kind of interesting, if you like cycling and Italy - maybe one for MarkC?
