The Tour de France is finished: already bored? 3 books we recommend
Whether you are on vacation, injured or tired: it is always nice to take some rest and read about the greatest rides.
1. La Vuelta
La Vuelta, known as the round of Spain, is no longer the small version of Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France. Edwin Winkels is a Dutch journalist based in Spain. He describes how La Vuelta grew up and how the tour survived political and social problems. It’s a Dutch book, read more about it.
2. Epic Bike Rides of the World
A book filled with a variety of beautiful routes and inspiring pictures. A good recommendation if you are planning a cycling vacation.
Order at Amazon.com or Bol.com.
3. Velo City
We like companies or organisations that dare to think differently. That is why we recommend this coffee table book Velo City. The book is all about bicycles and its unstoppable (r)evolution. You will find the craziest innovations in this book. Did you know that there is a bike that you can fold as small as an umbrella? Take a closer look.
