Reviews

Ever since the first Tour de France, cycle racing has captured the imagination of millions of people. The drama, passion, pain and glory has been stuff of legends. The beauty of cycling is that it knows no barriers. It's classless. Whether you ride a secondhand bicycle or the latest machine featuring the pinnacle in technical development, you are part of an ever expanding movement that is ecologically low impact and good for you! It inspires. Mark Fairhurst's art carries that inspiration. Humorous, thought provoking, encouraging; his work in this book is a joy to see and have. Remember, P is for Peloton. Get on your bike and RIDE! Sir David Brailsford, Team Principal, Team Sky
