A roadie with a blog

Jamie Smith is a cyclist. He has an amusing blog on the life of an enthusiastic road cyclist. He also wrote a book that was illustrated by cycling comic strip artist Jef Mallet.

Should I buy this book? The reviews look pretty good.

According to Amazon.com, Podium Cafe says “This book earned Podium Cafe’s first ever five-star rating!” But I can’t find their review there: When I search for the author’s name (Jamie Smith), I get no results. When I search for ‘roadie’ I get too many results. Imagine that.

    Buy it for the collector value and to support cycling artists like Mallett.

    I bought this book when it was released. Entertaining and easy/quick read. Jamie does a great job explaining bike culture. I was especially happy to meet Jamie at the Tour de Georgia and have him sign the book. Buy this book and read his blog – he's an awesome guy!
