Samenvatting

Robert Penn has saddled up nearly every day of his adult life. In his

late twenties, he pedaled 25,000 miles around the world. Today he rides

to get to work, sometimes for work, to bathe in air and sunshine, to

travel, to go shopping, to stay sane, and to skip bath time with his

kids. He's no Sunday pedal pusher. So when the time came for a new bike,

he decided to pull out all the stops. He would build his dream bike,

the bike he would ride for the rest of his life; a customized machine

that reflects the joy of cycling.


It's All About the Bike follows

Penn's journey, but this book is more than the story of his hunt for

two-wheel perfection. En route, Penn brilliantly explores the culture,

science, and history of the bicycle. From artisanal frame shops in the

United Kingdom to California, where he finds the perfect wheels, via

Portland, Milan, and points in between, his trek follows the serpentine

path of our love affair with cycling. It explains why we ride.


It's All About the Bike

is, like Penn's dream bike, a tale greater than the sum of its parts.

An enthusiastic and charming tour guide, Penn uses each component of the

bike as a starting point for illuminating excursions into the rich

history of cycling. Just like a long ride on a lovely day, It's All About the Bike is pure joy- enriching, exhilarating, and unforgettable.
