Doping for money and glory to keep his status, Millar was arrested when it was discovered that he was using performance enhancing drugs. Five years on, Millar wrote this book and opened up about his dark days. Use a marker pen or take a photo before removing the bars so you know how many spacers you need above and below the stem. 3. Make the most of your box It’s a record with such a nice ring to it that it almost feels obvious, just inevitable, that of course someone would circumnavigate the globe on a bike in just 80 days.To any cycling fan Marco Pantani will still be considered on of the best riders the world has ever known.

Finding the best cycling books for you will depend on a whole host of requirements, from what subject you are interested in, to period in history, or even authors. This is the best cycling book that tells the story of how Italy's most loved sporting greats excelled in winning races, being one of the only riders to challenge the now disgraced Lance Armstrong, and sadly met his end. It's a who's who guide to the cycling industry, an understanding on cycling politics and an understanding of where many of today's commentators, team managers and performance coaches made their cycling careers. As an autobiography, and while it's an honest account of his actions , it's nothing like The Death of Marco Pantani biography, and highlights the differences between addition and performance enhancing drugs.

Drag handles make life easier too. 5. Size However, travelling with a bike can be cumbersome and slightly worrying which is where a sturdy bike box comes in. Bike boxes ensure your bike is secure, protected and easily transportable. It will transport almost all modern drop-bar 700c or 650b bikes, and accommodate wheelbases up to 110 cm.

A bike box is an invaluable piece of equipment for any travelling cyclist. There’s no perfect answer as to which is the best, because they all have their trade-offs, so it’s important to weigh up your needs before you buy. Things to consider when choosing a bike box 1. HandlesWe’re cyclists who know and love cycling kit. We hit the road, the trails, we commute by bike and we enjoy chilled leisure rides too. And that’s how we find the best products: out riding. In this case it is out travelling around with our bikes.

Even if you're not flying, a bike box, bike bag or flight case can be useful. Sure, you can just put your bike in your car, but if you want to get lots of other luggage in too, a bike bag will protect your bike from bumps and scratches. The best bike bag, bike box or flight case would protect your bike from anything short of a direct artillery strike. It should require minimal faff to get your bike into it, can carry various bike genres and wheel sizes, and shouldn't make too big a dent in your luggage weight allowance. It should also cost a sensible amount of money, or if it's expensive, last you for many years. It includes Evoc’s new road bike stand which the brand says helps with easy fixation and extra safe transport. Some big names have also been impressed such as Elinor Barker, multiple world champion and Olympic gold medallist, who’s said: “Alan has completely changed my perception of what an athlete's diet can look like.” We’ve heard tales of people who thought they’d take their bike abroad in a soft bag or a cardboard bike box and it all going horribly wrong. You might get away with it, of course. You might get away with it many times. But what about that one time when your bike is at the bottom of a tower of cases being sorted by a bloke who’s already late finishing his shift?The little know 1919 Circuit des Champs de Bataille that was held just six months after the Armistice, but before the official end of the first world war with the signing of the treaty of Versailles. There's some tension between all those requirements. Extremely protective cases tend to be heavy and expensive, while cheaper bike bags don't protect your bike as well. Nevertheless, if you plan to travel with your bike even once or twice a year then a bike box or bag is a very worthwhile investment. Nothing ruins a cycling trip more than your bike lying crushed on the Tarmac before you've even cleared customs! It's an old story now, but still one of the best cycling books to read as modern day cycling. Although, be warned, if you're new to the sport, or a young whippersnapper, this can be depressing reading.
