Wanted to share a quick review of a book that I just finished and highly recommend.

Good Vibrations: Crossing Europe on a bike called Reggie

It details a cyclist who rides from southern England to the south of Italy. Funny and a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend.

Anyone have any other cycling book recommendations?

I'm currently reading Around the World on Two Wheels, the story of Annie "Londonderry"'s trip around the world by bicycle in 1895. The fact that anyone could get from New York to Chicago on a 40 pound fixie, plus wearing skirts and without much training is unbelievable.

Let us know what you think once you have finished it. I'll add it to my ever growing list of books to read if you like it.

I downloaded another cycling book last night, Just Ride by Grant Petersen based on a recommendation from a blogger. I 'll post a short review when finished.

I've been reading the Down the Road books by Tim Travis. He's been out on his bike for 10 years now. The books are well written, informative, cheap and they help keep a cyclist out on the road.

I also enjoyed Bike Touring Survival Guide by Friedel & Andrew. It's about 300 pages of great practical info and stories of their 60,000km global trip. You also get a free smaller guide book as well. For only about $7.
