Inhanced my love of cycling

Thanks for giving insight on varieties of the cycling experience I might otherwise never have known and thoughts to think about along the way! This book has inspired me to ride my bike across North Carolina.

Cycling: Philosophy for Everyone

If you could sum up Cycling in three words, what would they be?

Not only for gear heads.

Any additional comments?

This book goes a long way in explaining why we ride bikes and can be so addicted to the activity.

Philosophy for Everyone - Enjoyment for None?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

For starters, not spending 30 minutes (and I am not exaggerating) with an overall preview, followed by a section by section preview, followed by further previews. Never before have I found myself screaming "GET ON WITH IT!" to an audiobook.

What will your next listen be?

Anything to with cycling, nothing to do with Philosophy.

Any additional comments?

I bought this after reading the publisher's summary:" interesting and varied philosophical terrain" mmm and " in a fun but critical way" not in my world. Occasionally interesting, largely very heavy going and dull.
