In this day and age - where everything is just a mouse-click or two away - there is something so refreshing about getting the Road Book out.
The 'In their own Words', Ned's editorial introduction, and all the essays are brilliant in themselves - and well worth reading straight away.
But the beauty of this book lies elsewhere. Sure, I get the 2022 edition out from time to time. But invariably, when I'm reading about a rider or a race from a previous season, I find myself reverting to an earlier edition. And that is where the real fun begins! So often I find myself getting lost in a half-remembered race, and then going off on a half-dozen different tangents.
What a wonderful way to look back on a cycling season. And just like a good wine, each Rood Book will only become more important with the passing of time.
So much care and thought has gone into the Road Book; top quality production and paper.
A treasure! I can't recommend this book highly enough.
A beautiful, comprehensive and insightful joy, every year. Love it.
The Road Book is now an annual event. It’s a must have for cycling fans. It’s contains info and stats you didn’t know you even needed. It brings the memories of the races and the cycling year back to life with exquisite writing from the worlds’ talented peloton of cycling journalists. Christmas Day is now that little bit more special.
Love receiving this book every year. Filled with every kind of stat you can think of and those you haven't. Great job and the quality is first rate.
As usual, this is a comprehensive and unparalleled record and review of the cycling year. The work that must go into putting this together is astonishing and, while it's not cheap, it is well worth the money.
