Cycling - Philosophy for Everyone book. Lennard Zinn (Foreword). Mar 25, 2018 Simon Ross rated it liked it. A mixed bag. Some really excellent philosophical pieces that really made me think, using cycling as a subject and material for philosophy, but some weak ones as well that were more focused on making a strained analogy between cycling and philosophy.

Most of the writing is well done. Variety of authors. Sometimes interesting, sometimes a bit stilted and over the top. No great philosophical insights here. Some aren't even philosophical really. Still enjoyable and likely to find some resonance at least with other bikers. Entertaining read. Just don't expect any deep philosophy here.

Michael W. Austin really knows his stuff. He continues to amaze and enthrall me with the breadth of his knowledge about all things philosophy and sports. My only hope is that he will continue to produce at this astounding rate. Anyone who is a cyclist, is interested in cycling or has thought about riding a bike should buy this book immediately.
