Ned's obvious interest in the subject, open personality and self deprecating humour make for a very enjoyable read. Of particular interest to cycling fans, especially those who've been involved in the Britain's less glamorous but charming past, but as it's more about people and their fascinating stories, there's enough to keep non cycling folk interested too.
I listened to it across a few longish Sunday rides (using bone conduction headphones so I could still hear the traffic). Most chapters stand up fine as individual pieces, but with a thread that links them together.
Some really interesting stories coupled with great writing and good narration made for a really good audiobook.

A mis-mash of characters from the world of cycling presented in an interesting and intriguing fashion. Well written and excellently read by Boulting (minus the odd ropey accent!). Which makes no excuses for being a bit London centric and effectively unravels as a semi-autobiographical account of Neds time in the saddle with all his cycling buddies (many well know in the world of cycling). It does go into the depths of some very interesting characters and captures the spirit (as best it can) of cycling on the road in Britain.
