Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder is an anthology of thirty articles written by an amateur cyclist over a period of ten years. The collection exhibits the madness that engulfs those who descend into cycling obsession, celebrating the average cyclist living in a world defined by the pros. The writings range from fanciful musings concerning the Tao of singlespeeding to lengthy descriptions of end-to-end rides in Britain and Ireland. Mountain biking, road cycling and all sorts of other cycling events are chronicled along the way. Each is written in a lighthearted style designed to bring the reader into the author’s world which is often littered with incident and humour. Within the pages the reader will find a loose ticklist of events to ride, bikes to own and challenges to take on. Each described in the author’s own inimitable style.
Dave Barter is a British cyclist. He likes to think of himself as an all rounder having tried many two wheeled disciplines and fallen off most of them.

Couldn't put it down.
Dave, an absolute cracker of a read. Even on the sunshine coast in australia, the stories and laughs reminded me of past riding experiences. Your story telling is a gift and your youtube clips are just as good. ".....Stu, you know where i am ......."
Great book full of laughs and non political correctness and some great cycling stories too boot, well done Dave.
