Review: The Story Of The Tour De France

User Review  - Marya Dumont - Goodreads

This was a slog, with a few too many repetitive descriptions and too little context about the riders and their bigger picture to make for an engaging read. Educational? Yes. But I am thrilled to have finally finished it. Read full review

About the author (2006)

Bill and Carol McGann have had their lives inextricably tied up with bicycles about as long as they can remember. Their first date was a bike ride. Bill, formerly a Category 1 racer, has been a contributor to several cycling magazines and is widely acknowledged as an expert on road bikes and cycling history. Since his father gave him a small 1-speed English lightweight bicycle when he was 5 years old, Bill has been in love with everything about bikes. Carol, a former college biology instructor is also an accomplished rider, having cycle-toured extensively. Together they started Torelli Imports in 1981, a firm specializing in high-performance cycle equipment.
