Cyclings Greatest Misadventures is the first book to collect jaw dropping true stories of not only pros but average bikers whose experiences range from terrifying to comical to downright bizarre. The book contains 25 true, gripping, and sometimes unbelievable stories of crashes, freak accidents, animal attacks, meltdowns, race sabotages and bad judgment calls that bring to life the strange things that happen once people step on the pedals of their road, mountain, or commuter bikes. Youll read about a mountain biker stampeded by a herd of cattle; A man who attempted to jump the Great Wall of China on a bicycle; An engineer who finds hope riding in the rubble left by Hurricane Katrina, and many more. The stories will bring you to the edge of your seat, warm your heart, make you laugh and leave you shaking your head with disbelief.
