Bike themed activities for Christmas Day

Learn more about some of the legends

While we’re on the topic of the cycling greats, why not use your holiday time to learn more about the riders who inspire you?

Biographical accounts can give a great insight into the peloton, and sometimes the passion for cycling can rush off the page and into your heart and lungs and have you pounding the pedals through January with renewed vigour.

Nothing beats a good book (except maybe a ride)

One of my personal favourites is “The Flying Scotsman”, the story of Graeme Obree, and it’s a film too so could be a family experience, though the story is a little sad, so be ready with tissues!

Another favourite is “The Hour” by Time Trialist and Cycling Weekly columnist Michael Hutchinson, who really is an amazing writer.

If you want to learn about one of the inspirational women in cycling history, check out “Racing Is Life: The Beryl Burton Story DVD” to see more of the phenomenal legend who proved herself the Best British All Rounder 25 times in a row.
