This is the best-selling, multi-reprinted, much-acclaimed German book about riding skills and how-to-think-about-riding. Deservedly so. It is terrific and goes well beyond everything similar. Now finally available in English, the reader is guided through five sections that build upon our evolutionary biology, conscious actions and capabilities, and integration of man and machine to achieve higher levels of performance in the ultimate quest to become one with the bike (and the road). So refine your spirit and train your body and follow your own path to greater enlightenment. Be the ride you seek. This is as deep as it comes, grasshopper. But in a good (though slightly humorless Euro/Germanic/rationalistic/empricisstic) way. Enjoy this tasty toasted Muesli…it’s said to be very good for you. And for the most part, it is. By Bernt Spiegel. Translated by Meredith Hassall. Softbound, 8.5"×10.75", 189 pp., color illus.
