The long days of summer are over, it is now, as we settle in to autumn, that I like to start reading again. I’ve been inspired by some of the reading challenges to be found on the internet, and have put together – A Reading Challenge for Cyclists
I started the challenge earlier in the year, choosing to read a few cycling themed / related books. I will pick up the list again, and see if I can complete my 20 book challenge by next spring. Here is how it is going so far…
A Reading Challenge for Cyclists.
- Read a book set in Europe Mountain High by Daniel Frieze and Pete Goding, although I have to confess more looking at pictures than reading.
- Read a book you can finish in a day The Rider by Tim Krabbe
- Read a book written by a comedian I’ve recently finished reading Geronimo by Tim Moore, Tim isn’t officially a comedian, but the book did make me laugh a lot.
- Read a book with a blue cover Sat on my bookshelf is the Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair by Park Tools, I don’t promise to read it by spring!
- Read an autobiography Hunger by Sean Kelly
- Read a book about a road trip
- Read a book that takes place on an island
- Read a book with a number in the title
- Read a book with a beautiful cover
- Read a book to feed your wanderlust
- Read a book with food in the title The Grand Tour Cookbook by Hannah Grant – this book does not strictly meet the challenge, but it’s a good read, as well as a good cookbook.
- Read a classic It’s a Rough Ride by Paul Kimmage
- Read a book you own but haven’t read See number 4.
- Read a book that has been made into a movie
- Read a book based on a true story
- Read a book that is more than 10 years old
- Read a book that will make you smarter I think all books make you a little smarter, however for this challenge I read Manners by Kate Spade.
- Read a book originally written in another language
- Read a self improvement book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo, I did infact find this book life changing see Kiss and Fly, I still have a tidy home!
- Read a book set somewhere you want to visit
I still have quite a lot of reading to do before I complete the challenge. You can download the challenge above, and if you need inspiration visit Cycling Weekly for the greatest 50 cycling books of all time.
