Cycling's Greatest Misadventures
Cycling's Greatest Misadventures 
Cycling, one of the world’s most popular sports, brings to mind Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and images of racers crashing into guardrails in the French Alps. Yet every day people on bikes experience hazardous, jaw-dropping, and adrenaline-pumping calamities that become the war stories of not only the pros but also the “average” biker.

Cycling’s Greatest Misadventures is the first book to collect these true stories, ranging from terrifying to comical to downright bizarre. The book contains 25 gripping and sometimes unbelievable stories of crashes, freak accidents, animal attacks, meltdowns, race sabotages, and bad judgment calls that bring to life the strange things that happen once people step on the pedals of their road, mountain, or commuter bikes.

You’ll read about a mountain biker stampeded by a herd of cattle, a man who attempted to jump the Great Wall of China on a bicycle, an engineer who finds hope riding in the rubble left by Hurricane Katrina, and many more. The stories will bring you to the edge of your seat, warm your heart, make you laugh, and leave you shaking your head with disbelief.

25 true stories written by amateur cyclists, professional athletes, and journalists.
