Overview:Bikie: A Love Affair with the Racing Bicycle - Most of us learn to ride a bike as a child. For some, the marvel and joy of those first few seconds can spark a lifelong passion. This book describes one such love affair. Bikie is the story of Charlie Woods' lifelong fascination with racing bikes. Woods traces his love of cycling from childhood to to adulthood, recalling the challenges and new horizons which served as a rite of passage into manhood. Bikie explores a sport which has been a source of pleasure and comfort to Woods throughout his life. However, this is much more than one man's homage to cycling. The book analyses cycling as a national sport and a pastime intrinsic to British culture and heritage. Britain has a lively tradition of cycling. Today races such as the Tour de France draw huge British audiences, with coverage assured on prime-time TV. Through anecdote and analysis the bike is revealed in Bikie as a constant factor in a rather haphazard life - a source of solace and support with which to ride out every age and season, as well as a national tradition surrounded by history and folklore.
