Overview


From the Tour de France to the biggest and best sportives, riders can choose their own adventures from among the world's greatest bike rides and best cycling races to watch or ride
 
From Europe to Asia, via North America and Africa, this book highlights the must-ride races and gran fondos where riders can really test their legs against both the terrain and their fellow riders. Options include cheering on the world's top professionals from the roadside as they take on the Tour Down Under, heading into the Alps to watch the sport's greatest riders tackle the Tour de France, conquering the U.S. on the Race Across America, or mountain biking one's way through South Africa on the Cape Epic. Types of races covered include pro stage race (across the Dolomites at the Giro d'Italia), road (the Etape du Tour of the Tour de France), mountain bike (Valparaiso, Chile), night (the London Nocturne), pro one-day race (take on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix), cyclo-cross (Yorkshire's Three Peaks), long distance (cycle across Africa), and track (the Good Friday Track Meet at Herne Hill Velodrome). The author compiled the list with contributions from some of the world's leading cyclists, including 2012 Milan-San Remo winner Simon Gerrans and 2012 Tour of the Mediterranean champion Jonathan Tiernan-Locke.
