Has anyone read Mike Maganuson's book Heft on Wheels? It's a memoir about a very out of shape, alcholic who turns to cycling. Different...but I liked it and found it inspiring...and funny.
No, but I probably should...

I just started reading it.
I have not read the book yet. However, I got to meet the Author and ride with him at the end of September. Mike seriously ROCKS! My wife is getting me the book for Christmas, I think.

A great read. Nice insights on being overweight, teaching, too. He's obsessive, no doubt. I was wondering what his wife thought about the transformation. Marrying a hard drinking party boy boozer, and then ending up with a rock hard jock. Cool...

Just saw the book in Borders. I like the sound of it....sounds like me, albeit w/o the booze and smoking. I'm at 40, want to get from 235 to 170, and want to be a proficient cyclist.
I just finished the book. Yep, my wife got it for me for Christmas. Good book. Great guy.

I read the book, good read, I always enjoy his articles in Bicycling. As a big guy I really related to the book and as I begin my quest to lose weight I refer to it often for a little motivation.
