French Revolutions

Cycling the Tour de France. One of the funniest books about sport ever written. Bill Bryson on two wheels A one liner every other line not so much witty travelogue as self-examination in a joke-heavy trial by fire’ 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 course of the Tour de France. All 3,630km of it. 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.

‘Moore is a talented and funny writer, who, through a combination of slapstick, absurd simile and a healthy suspicion of French civilisation, gives us something to laugh at on almost every page’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

‘Moore’s floundering attempts to emulate the Herculean feats of his cycling heroes unfold with eye wetting hilarity’ THE TIMES

‘Moore unleashes a high-energy torrent of astute observation and hilarious self-deprecation. Hailed as the new Bill Bryson, he is in fact a writer of considerably more substance.. .The jokes come thick and fast’ IRISH TIMES

‘Hilarious and inspiring.. .lt is embarrassingly laugh-out-loud’ DAILY EXPRESS

‘Laugh-out-loud...A great read. Very, very funny’ DAILY EXPRESS
