What's the postie brought you today?
I was thinking of this book the other day after seeing Emily in an article a women endurance atheletes. I think you’re right that it really chimes if you are familiar with inner London riding. I really enjoyed it. I lent mine to a cycling pal without that experience and he found it a bit average.I looked at the OP and decided to by Emily Chappell's book about her adventures as a bike courier in London.
It wasn't strictly brought to me by the postie because I appear to have downloaded it to my Kindle Cloud Reader, something I didn't know I had.
Works OK, opens in my web browser, but I do wonder what I have actually bought for my fiver.
Made a start on the 'book'.
Readable and not too long.
As someone who spent several years working in the West End of London and wandering around there it appeals to me.
I grasp her descriptions of the various characters she encounters but never really makes friends with.
Maybe not so interesting for someone with no knowledge of or interest in the capital.
