I saw a post on another board about a couple books about cycling- fiction. "The Tour", and "The Race" by Davie Shields. Relatively new author, and a cyclist to boot. I thoroughly enjoyed them; if you're looking for something cycling related to read between Tour de France stages, I can recommend these.
I posted some praise on his website and asked about sequels, and got a nice reply in a couple hours.
I got mine on Amazon. haven't seen them in local stores though.
