    Road Cycling/Racing Novels

    Looking for a good read these days, fiction or non-fiction. Any recommendations? Btw, I'm not looking for one of those training bible books.

    Thanks

    I'm currently reading Blazing Saddles for the third time. The Tour Is Won On The Alpe is a good read as well.

    Good question. I can't offer any suggestions, but am also interested in what other folks have to offer.

    This and Roadie by @EventServices are the two best cycling books I have read.

    Thanks for the mention! Glad you enjoyed it!

    I'm currently working on a time travel cycling fiction story that aims somewhere between Hitchhiker's Guide and Woody Allen. Not sure what'll become of it. But it's been fun to work on so far.
    Since they don't do fiction, VeloPress has already passed on this one.
