The Reviews

“A must read for any enthusiastic sportive rider.”
Lee (cyclist from Burgess Hill)

“Iain Dowie didn’t know the real meaning of the word ‘bounce-back-ability’ when he coined it. This author does. A story of hope, tenacity, courage and obsession that makes you remember nothing is truly lost until it is lost.”
Shaun (non-cyclist from Haywards Heath)

“Properly inspiring. The back story provides the book with purpose and what’s been achieved is pretty impressive. I’m not much of a cyclist and it might not have persuaded me to get in the saddle, but certainly it gave me a new found appreciation of the amount of hard work put in. Also it reads like a book with a proper flow. I’ve had a couple of mates “publish” their own books, but they read more like a stream of consciousness ramble whereas with this, I knew what was going on!
Andy (non-cyclist from Brighton)

“Just uploaded this book and read it from first to last page in one go. I admit I’ve never cycled or been that interested in cycling. What an eye opener. I really rode those routes and the familiar countryside of Sussex pictured in my head. I’m just so pleased I didn’t feel the burn on all of those rides. I would recommend this book to anyone at the very least it gives your brain a workout and may just encourage you to take up cycling.”
Joyce (non-cyclist from Peacehaven)

“Really enjoyed the book, amazed that he can cover such distances at incredible speeds. Really liked the descriptions of the climbs and terrain, the photos and maps are really good. Clovelly was my favourite place as a child, how he made it up that hill, I don’t know.
Martin (non-cyclist from Burgess Hill)

“I had the privilege of reading this book and I was amazed at the impact that it had on me. You see, this is not a subject that I would normally be interested in. I  was glued from start to finish. This book which has been cleverly written to portray the real facts of this man’s life and changes he had to make, brought all emotions to the surface until the inspirational achievements made. This man has shown great strength. This is a must read. Light hearted but inspirational.”
Maria (non-cyclist from Hove)

“An inspiring read that’s hard to put down. Great to read the experience of the ups and downs of an improving rider.”
Ian (cyclist from Plumpton)
