The Agony & the Ecstasy: Stephen Roche's World of Cycling by Stephen Roche with David Walsh (£15.50)Publisher: Stanley Paul — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091736846]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper heavily tanned at the join of the rear panel. Leans slightly. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Stephen Roche during the 1987 Tour de France. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “On the morning after Stephen Roche became cycling champion of the world, a French newspaper wrote: We sought a successor to Bernard Hinault but, instead, we found a new Eddy Merckx. In winning the Giro d’ltalia, Tour de France and World Championship in 1987, Roche entered the Merckx class as only the second cyclist to win the sport’s three great prizes in the same season. The achievement will ensure a permanent place for Roche in cycling’s heroic history — but what the history books will not record are the struggles, conflicts, sufferings and satisfaction that lay behind the dedicated Irishman’s great victories.

The Agony & the Ecstasy is the story of the making of a champion, from his boyhood on the Dublin streets where his passion for cycling was born and fostered by his father, through the gruelling years of trying to prove he had the talent everyone said he had. The book follows Roche’s growth from home-town Dublin boy into a young European, famous in every city where cycling is a major sport, and the astonishing series of wins in 1987 that were to make him a sporting legend. The Agony & the Ecstasy takes us behind the scenes of triumph and into the mysterious world of cycling to show us what life for top professionals is really like: the roads, the races and the riders themselves — how they live and train; the battles with the elements on the great marathons; the crowds and their role in morale; the dangers of the sport, and the elation or despair when the finish line is reached.

Stephen Roche, one of the most likeable world champions in any sport, is articulate, perceptive and often controversial. Together with journalist David Walsh he has produced a fascinating, thought-provoking book about his own route to the summit, and an illuminating in-depth study of his sport.”

Bicycle Touring in Australia by Leigh Hemmings (£11.50)Publisher: The Mountaineers — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0898863023]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled with rubbing to the tips. Leans slightly. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Australia is a vast and beautiful continent of great contrasts. One perfect way to see it — that is also environmentally friendly and physically challenging — is by bicycle.

This book, Bicycle Touring in Australia, offers the cyclist eight different tours around the country to choose from — the sparkling coast of New South Wales, the lush rainforests of Northern Queensland, the arid desert of Central Australia, the tall tree forests of the southwest of Western Australia, the vineyard and river country of South Australia, part of Victoria’s rugged coastline, the mountainous wilderness of Tasmania, and the grandeur of Victoria’s and New South Wales’s high plains.

Sixteen pages of full colour photographs taken by the author while riding the tours vividly illustrate the type of country the cyclist will experience.

The focus of the book is completely practical and it is designed to be taken with the cyclist and used as a daily guide, or as the basis for a self-designed adventure.

Included for each tour are maps, height profiles and detailed directions for the ride. The initial three chapters discuss the history of cycling in Australia, preparing for your ride, and advice when on the road, including maintenance of your bike.

To research the book, photographer and writer Leigh Hemmings, cycled more than 6000 kilometres, repaired numerous flat tyres and broken spokes and ploughed his way through snow, heat, rain and mud — all of which he says -were wonderful, unforgettable experiences.

So, pack your panniers and go. Australia awaits.”

Clock Jacks and Bee Boles: A Dictionary of Country Sights by Courtney Dainton (£9.50)Publisher: Phoenix House — 1957Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with fading to the spine. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates [12];

From the cover: “During cycling and walking tours in the country Courtney Dainton often found his curiosity aroused by man-made objects in daily use in earlier centuries, country bygones, so to speak. He tried to find out more about them, and was struck by the lack of information in any convenient form. He therefore collected his discoveries from many sources into this handy book, arranging them in alphabetical order, illustrating some of them with his own photographs, making, in fact, a countryside companion.

Many and often surprising objects have survived in public places; things like branks and blow wells, candle holes and tumble gates, pitch-pipes and vamping horns, not to mention clock jacks and bee boles. Mostly they are clues to the manners and customs of the past; sometimes they are the strange forerunners of devices we know today, or have their uses still. Some — stiles, for instance — may be so commonplace that we have never given them a second thought, and so are unaware of their antiquity, their ‘origins, and their variations.

Here, then, is a book to kindle curiosity and to add real interest to expeditions.”

Every Second Counts by Lance Armstrong with Sally Jenkins (£9.50)Publisher: Yellow Jersey Press — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0224064665]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: From the cover: “In Paris on 25 July 1999, Lance Armstrong made world headlines with the most stunning comeback in the history of sport, winning the Tour de France in the fastest ever time after battling against life-threatening testicular cancer just eighteen months previously. A few months after that historic victory, he became a father for the first time. His first book, It’s Not About the Bike, charted his journey back to life and went on to become an international bestseller, and to win the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2000.

Now, in this much-anticipated follow-up, Armstrong shares more details of his remarkable life story, including four more Tour de France wins, an Olympic medal, and the births of his twin daughters Grace and Isabelle. Never shy of controversy, Lance Armstrong is a genuine global sports superstar and one of cycling’s greatest ever champions. Here he offers us his life philosophy — his thoughts on training, competing, winning and failure. He also recounts the work done for the Foundation he set up following his dramatic recovery and introduces further inspirational tales of cancer survival.

Every Second Counts is another extraordinary and awe-inspiring book from a man who strives every day to meet life’s momentous challenges.”

Head east into Wiltshire and there are the Vale of Pewsey and the Wylye Valley, both idyllic areas for the cyclist.

The Flight of the Maidens by Jane Gardam (£7.00)Publisher: Abacus — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0349114242]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Jane Gardam has captured the burgeoning renaissance of post-war Britain in her novel The Flight of the Maidens. Writing with her usual deft and sensitive touch, she follows the lives and loves of three girls, Hetty, Una and Lieselotte, who are in transition from home to university in the Yorkshire of 1946. All three have suffered some fallout from war but have achieved academic success and have been offered university scholarships. Before they begin their studies, however, they have additional emotional lessons to learn. Gardam explores the life and development of each character in turn, and projects the reader into a vivid post-war reality. Hetty loves her battle-scarred father--now the local gravedigger--who haunts the locale, but she yearns to escape the clutches of her possessive mother and finds temporary solace with an intelligent but dull lance corporal. Una goes cycling with Ray, the boy who used to deliver fish, as she forms her first relationship with a male after the suicide of her father--someone who was also a victim of an affliction called war. Silent Lieselotte, a Jew from Hamburg who was on the last refugee train out, visits York, London and America as she searches for her family and roots, encountering a myriad of memorable experiences (the images of a bombed London are particularly startling and evocative). 288pp.
