Book goes on tour (and it’s not even written yet)

roadsbookcoverYou know when I said I had just two chapters left to write? I split each of ’em in half so I now have four chapters left to write. The book is getting fatter and fatter. I’m really looking forward to letting it fly.

BTW That’s the final cover artwork but not the book’s final cover typography: that will be drawn by Paul Robson soon. And the strap line changes to “How cyclists were the first to push for good roads and became the pioneers of motoring.”

Meanwhile, some very nice and kind people have invited me to give talks about the book:

6th JUNE
1-2pm. The Mac, St. Anne’s Square

12th JUNE
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL OF CYCLING, Edinburgh South Sider pub, a 10 min walk from Waverley station.

12th JULY
Time and venue to be announced.

CYCLOX, Oxford
Time and venue to be announced.

Oh, and here are the book chapters:
