Pedalare! Pedalare! by John Foot

Pedalare

Okay – so it’s not that I’ve read two books in a day but rather that I’ve been a bit slack on blogging about it. For my next book it was a change of emphasis and I picked up a cycling title. Italians have always had a big place in the history of the sport and the link between cycling, culture and history is what this book sought to explore. You can’t help but feel that there’s a really great book to be written on this topic. Sadly, despite this being an interesting read, this book isn’t it, Too much was glossed over and yet, at the same time, too many points were repeated over and over (things were explained two or three times in the course of as many pages) Having said all that the topic was so interesting, the characters so larger than life, and the passion so intense it was still a fun journey through some of the greatest moments in the sport’s history.
