Self-confessed loafer Time Moore, seduced by the speed and glamour of the biggest annual sporting even in the world, sets out to cycle the course of the Tour de France. All 3,630km of it. Racing old men on butchers' bikes and chased by cows, Moore soon resorts to standard race tactics - cheating and drugs - in a hilarious and moving tale of true adventure.
Laugh out loud, even if you are not a tour de France fan this book is so funny. His turn of phrase is par excellance. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Alongside his attempt to cycle the tour de France route he gives you the history, anecdotes and story's of the race steeped in French culture.
Buy this book, you will not be disappointed.
I have owned this book 3 times now. I bought the original paperback when it first came out. I loaned it out then bought it again. I now have the iBooks version.
It is written in a way that will have the reader in stitches. It will also have you looking forward to each years tours.
Great book, really enjoyed it. Very funny and inspirational.
