Carbon Addiction: Bikes, Words & Life

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


My name is Peter and I am an addict.

What began innocently with a token fitness drive on a cheap hybrid bicycle several years ago, quickly and quite unexpectedly took hold of me with a vice-like grip; one that cannot be easily loosened even to this day. Whilst initially I tried to hide it from the outside world, my little Lycra secret, I have come to accept road cycling is an all-consuming addiction that has led to some impossible-to-ignore changes in my life and come at high financial cost. I cannot deny it has affected my family, my friends and my health. But do you know what? I couldn’t be happier.

Carbon Addiction: Bikes, Words & Life is an entertainingly eclectic exploration of one man's introduction to, and subsequent obsession with, road cycling; from his local bunch ride all the way to the greatest cycling event of them all, the Tour de France.
