There are many interesting as well as funny moments but, be warned, you may just want to follow in his foot steps or wheel tracks and run As a keen amateur Sunday morning cyclist I was worried the book might not have been as good as my expectations - how wrong I was. I enjoyed every page, my only gripe not really a gripe was that I wished it had been Not much of a cyclist myself but like reading about Britain. To me, Priestley was the best and maybe Thoreaux.

Penning a book review is a bit of a novelty for me. Not since English classes at school have I had to undertake any form of literary criticism. I can almost see the recipient of a harsh review spitting feathers and asking what the hell the critic has ever done of merit. Having said that, there are of course exceptions. Fifty shades of utter tripe anyone? Fortunately, in One Man and his Bike, regular Guardian contributor Mike Carter has produced a book that is a genuine pleasure to read. The books premise is simple.
