These days it's worth coming here as much for the reading as the riding!
We started out with quite an array of books on the subject of cycling and triathlon and now, over time, the library has doubled thanks to some really generous donations and gifts from guests, friends and family. We would like to thank in person the following people, with a special mention going to Kirt who, from the States, has sent us 2 magnificent parcels brimming with some amazing titles (all packed out with coffee beans and other goodies).
Our thanks go out to:
Kirt, Jimmy, Will, Dan, Nick, Matt, Undies, George, Huw, Cycling Weekly, Frosty, Steven, Rob and Malatcha.
To give you a taster, a list of just some of the titles we have here:
The Rider, Tim Krabbe / Bad Blood, Jeremy Whittle / A Century of Cycling, William Fotheringham / Gold Rush, Phil O'Connor and Cycling Weekly / The Crooked Path to Victory, Les Woodland / Sex, Lies and Handelbar Tape, Paul Howard / Rough Ride, Paul Kimmage / It's Not About The Bike, Lance Armstrong / Put Me Back On My Bike, William Fotheringham / Inside The Postal Bus, Michael Barry / Push Yourself Just A Little Bit More, Johnny Green / The Death Of Marco Pantani, Matt Rendell / Breaking The Chain, Willy Voet / The Escape Artist, Matt Seaton / Fallen Angel - The Passion of Fausto Coppi, William Fotheringham / French Revolutions, Tim Moore / 23 Days In July, John Wilcockson / The Lance Armstrong Performance Programme, Armstrong & Carmichael / From Lance to Landis, David Walsh / We Might As Well Win, Johan Bruyneel / The Beautiful Machine, Graeme Fife....and many more!
