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.

I am one of those 30 something's whose spends far to much time working in particular driving. This book was superb in passing many hours circumnavigating the M25 instead of being out on my bike.
If you like cycling your enjoy this book. It made me chuckle on many occasions, more than any radio station!
Great content, but below par audio.
I think hell might actually sound like the intro/outro ‘music’ to each track on this audiobook. The content is good enough to overlook this and the slightly drab narration. If you can read the book, do that instead.
Great listen, funny and even informative. I want more!
