IT'S ALL ABOUT THE BIKE The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels

by | Read by Jonathan Cowley

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Some people bike for exercise, or simply pedal from Point A to Point B. Then there are those for whom biking is a way of life—an alternative to cars, an outlet for competition, a way to go everywhere. This book is geared for the latter, and is written with much passion. Fortunately, it’s told in the same way. With his deep British accent, Jonathan Cowley conveys the enthusiasm of the author as well as the pride of the craftsman. Cowley’s narration expresses the meticulous detail that bicycle makers go to in getting their work done, technical piece by piece. Listeners will hear historical accounts, debates on steel versus other metals, the merits of various saddles, and more. Casual fans: You may not get this. Enthusiasts: Jump on for a great ride.
