Pedal Power: Inspirational stories from the world of cycling.

Pedal Power: Inspirational Stories from the World of Cycling

New 2017. Scott has a chapter about his bicycle journeys and how his adventures fuel a desire to make the world a better place.

Synopsis: A bike can be so many different things—a simple way of navigating busy city streets or enjoying quiet lanes, a cross-country steed to take a rider up hill and down dale, or even a world-beating racing machine. What unites everyone who rides is that they each have their own cycling story to tell. This book collects inspirational stories from riders around the world, both ordinary and extraordinary, from the London cyclist who rode 10,000 km in a month, to the daredevil trials rider who hops from building to building, to classic tales of grand-tour rivalries and legendary cycling records of days gone by. Essential reading for anyone who loves life on two wheels. Available on Amazon.

By The Seat of My Pants. Edited by Don George. Lonely Planet.
