It's All About the Bike
Robert Penn has ridden a bike most days of his life. He rides to get to work, to bathe in air and sunshine, to stay sane and to feel free. This is the story of his love affair with cycling and the journey to build his dream bike; a freewheeling pilgrimage taking him from Californian mountain bike inventors to British artisan frame builders, and from perfect components to the path of true happiness.
'A gem of a book ... a joy'
'Infectious, exhilarating, highly engaging'
'Be swept along by Penn's enthusiasm, humour and refreshing candour'
'Enriches your enjoyment of a ride'
'As a depiction of a world you might vote for, Penn's does not sound bad at all'
Robert Penn writes for the Financial Times, Observer and Conde Nast Traveller, as well as a host of cycling publications. He is the author of The Wrong Kind of Snow. Robert lives in the Black Mountains, South Wales with his wife and three children and commutes to work across a heather moor on a mountain bike.
