The Wind At My Back : A Cycling Life Paperback / softback
by Paul Maunder
In this deeply personal and lyrical exploration of what it means to ride a bicycle, Paul Maunder explores how our memories have a dialogue with landscape and how cycling and creativity are connected.
Taking a journey through the places that have shaped him, we ride across wild moorland, through suburbia and city streets, into quintessentially English pastoral scenes.
We see too some of the darker parts of the British countryside, sites of great secrecy that intrigue the imagination.
This is a book about how landscape can sustain us, and how even an hour's escape can inspire our creative sides.
The bicycle allows us to explore and dream, and return in time for dinner.
