Good Book About Biking?

I must have done a poor job of searching but I thought I could get a list of good books about cycling. I am not talking about technical books, or how to books, or historical documentary books, etc. I would like to read a good book that happens to be about cycling and the love of cycling, be it racing or touring or whatever.

Needn't be a classic novel, need not be an award winning book or a piece of great literature, but a good book worth reading. I welcome any suggestions.

Off the Map: Bicycling Across Siberia

look it up on Amazon. I read this book years ago and it was interesting.

Only one I have found is " Breaking Away"

I have found one book I am enjoying: "Its All About The Bike: The Pursuit of Happiness On Two Wheels"

Pete Sagan wrote a book. So did George Hincapie (OK, someone wrote it for him), Jens Voight and of course there are several about and by Lance Armstrong. And there are tons about Le Tour dr France.

French Revolutions. Out of shape English guy decides to ride the Tour de France route on his own, based on a map he cut out of a magazine. https://www.amazon.com/French-Revolu.../dp/0312316127
