On the Road Bike

The Search for a Nations Cycling Soul


An amusing and personal exploration of the austere, nutty soul of British cycling from Ned Boulting, the author of How I Won The Yellow Jumper.
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, television's quintessential roving reporter, 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 from Chris Boardman to Bradley Wiggins, via Mark Cavendish, David Millar (and David's mum), Ken Livingstone, Dean Macey, Sir Paul Smith, 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.
