Release the clowns! Bring out your dead! Glory be, the day is finally here.
I have the utmost (yes, the utmost) of pleasure in announcing that my much-heralded book is now available to buy. You can do so by clicking on the link below and following the instructions.
Sportiveur: A Beginner’s Guide To Training For, Completing And Enjoying Your First Sportive
Most of you are pretty familiar with the content (the clue is in the title), and what you gain from reading it (it takes you from novice cyclist to sportive conqueror), so I won’t flog that particular horse.
(To be clear, I don’t flog ANY horses.)
The only additional feature to point out is that I’ve interspersed the advice with vignettes from my own personal journey from short distance johnny* to RideLondon finisher.
You can either use these flashbacks to laugh at my ineptitude or to take heart that even a very imperfect training regime allowed me to complete the 100 mile course, in a sort-of-respectable time, and have fun doing so.
*Technical term – no need to look it up.
