From Our Editor

"2023 was a year of rapid change. Events piled upon events as in a game of whist; ever better cards falling on top of others, the next one trumping the last in an excess of superlatives. Nothing stayed still for long. At times it was dizzying.

And what did we glean from what we saw? We learned that suddenly the tiniest of gaps can become a chasm. Once the breach has been made, however slight, it takes no more than a little continued pressure for everything to fall apart at once, and at a violent pace. We are left wondering how it ever held together for so long, witnesses to the speed at which things unravel, understanding with new clarity that perhaps it was always going to collapse. We just didn’t see it coming." Ned Boulting, The Road Book editor

    I have all 6 editions

    If you are an avid cycling historian and nerd this almanac has filled a gap that has been waiting to be filled for a century. It's a massive edition and will take a year ti absorb. One complaint is that the font size makes it hard to read, but i understand why it has to be tiny. Perhaps all subscribers should also receive a magnifying glass.

    Excellent quality book but change the p&p!

    The book is excellent, a good read and superior quality item. You’ve lost a star for packaging. This (and I suspect others purchased in December) is a gift and therefore having the contents printed on the label is really unhelpful! Not such a surprise for my cycling mad partner anymore….
