first paragraph description of book, taken from the publishers website, Bloomsbury

Ride the Revolution represents the best new writing on cycling from women involved in the sport at all levels – as fans, key personnel, riders, photographers, journalists and presenters.

These fresh and vibrant voices examine the sport from a new perspective to provide insights that rarely make it into the mainstream – what is it like to be a top women rider or work in their support team? Where is the women’s sport heading and when will more women be represented at the highest level of sport’s governance? And how do you get out and ride your bike when the news is full of stories of cyclists dying and you can’t get clothing that fits? – See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/ride-the-revolution-9781472912923/#sthash.d0e6ajxu.dpuf
