'Bill Bryson on two wheels' Independent Self-confessed loafer Tim Moore, seduced by the speed and glamour of the biggest annual sporting event in the world, sets out to cycle the Tour de France. All 3,630km of it. A few weeks before the actual Tour de France, British writer Tim Moore sets out to cycle the course and offers a laugh-out-loud funny and highly entertaining account of how the great ride would feel when embarked on by an amateur. Racing old men on butchers' bikes and being chased by cows, Moore soon resorts to standard race tactics - cheating and drugs - in a hilarious and moving tale of true adventure.

The British humour and the wordplays in this book can be difficult to understand - especially if English is not your first language. I had to read some sentences a few times to make sure that the author was making a joke. I only started to appreciate at halfway of the book. Overall, a nice little funny book about cycling to read. There is a lot of interesting things to learn.
