This meditative love letter to cycling traces the journey of a former professional racer regaining his love for the sport, and shows how cycling can shed light on questions of selfhood, meaning and purpose. Interweaving cycling, philosophy and personal narrative, the book presents readers with a deep understanding into the highs and lows of being an elite athlete, the limits of approaching any sport from a strictly rational perspective, and how the philosophical and often counterintuitive lessons derived from sport can be applied to other areas of life.
