Vélo is a unique look at the bike. Through a series of short essays, Paul Fournel beautifully evokes the experience and spirirt of all aspects of cycling.
From the glorious moment of first learning to stay upright on two wheels, to the joy of riding with friends, from the delight of good days to the hell of bad days, from the Tour de France to tours of landscapes discovered while out riding.
Accompanied by illustrations from Jo Burt, these pieces are the story of a love affair not just with the bike, but with everything it represents.
What the reviewers had to say:
'Joyous. Destined to become a classic.'
'Cycling writing at its best.'
