Simple Words from the Saddle

Simple Words from the Saddle This has got to be the stocking-filler of choice for any bike rider. Simple Words from the Saddle isn’t pearls of wisdom from a Harley but musings from a cycle, with pedal power and time to enjoy the scenery.

Scot Whitlock is the cyclist author of this travelogue and it’s full of humour and inspiration. It’s the kind of book to thumb through on cold winter’s nights whilst planning the next big cycle adventure. We are taken down country roads, we are tantalised by the smell of bacon cooking, and we meet people as we travel with Scot.

The chapter headings are intriguing: Who Needs a Balaclava, New Year in Deepest Cmyru, and A Spot of Gongoozling on Two Wheels will likely have the curious page-turning. It’s cycling that has moulded Scot into the writer he is today … well that and reaching, as he says, rock bottom, which was a condition that introduced him to the humble bike to start off with.

Simple Words from the Saddle will encourage those hardy sorts who already have cycles to take to the path less trodden – or ridden – but this will also be an amusing read for the rest of us who can travel vicariously from the over-stuffed comfort of the chair by the fire. A good read.
