    The Beeb (BBC2) did a series of late night documentaries on Beaumonts ride around the world.
    Excellent series of programmes.

    Here is a summary of the cycling books that I have been reading in recent times.

    I will try to keep it up to date as I add to my collection.

    Any recommendations welcome, thanks!

    i've only read every second counts and it's not about the bike and heft on wheels and the masked rider as books that pertain to ridng but We Might as Well Win is next. thanks for that, i might not have known of it otherwise.

    Not the first, nor the last. Here's few more 'round the worlders.

    I'd also recommend Travels With Rosinante, by Bernard Magnouloux, if you can find a copy. I was lucky to find a remaindered copy for pennies about 16 years ago. It's a treasured book in my collection.
