Day 298: Bike Snob book

Bike Snob's book

I recently started reading Bike Snob: Systematically & Mercilessly Realigning the World of Cycling. If you’ve not read it yet, I highly recommend it. Just like his blog, no one is immune from his ridicule and scorn, but he also offers a lot of good advice and tips on cycling. Not to mention humor (which is probably funny only to cyclists). There have been several times when I’ve been reading the book on my lunch hour, laughed out loud and received weird looks from strangers sitting nearby. I particularly enjoyed his description of the world of cycling:

“The world of cycling is like a big bowl of Lucky Charms — it’s full of lots of goofy-looking figures in different colors and shapes, but they all come together to be delicious.”

Obviously, there’s much more to the book than that, but I don’t want the copyright police to come after me. 🙂 If you’re looking for funny, quick read, be sure to check this one out.

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!
