More > exhausting and dangerous sport at an age when many would consider a round of golf the most taxing thing they'd undertake. He did so with no background in the sport, and having very much to feel his way on every step of the journey. Despite all the trials and tribulations, Paul reached his goals; he raced on his home-made bike and he more then held his own against the other riders all on much faster bikes. As a bonus he can now always say that he did it - he got out there and raced, pitting himself shoulder to shoulder against a wide variety of other riders, some famous, most not, who have in common a love of old bikes and a willingness to ride them as fast as possible over punishing terrain. What you also get is an honest, no-holds barred narrative of the writer's experiences.< Less
