Free books about bikes

Happy New Year, everybody.

I’m giving these books (and one t-shirt – unused, of course!) away right here on this blog after the New Year.


Giving these books away

It’ll be first come, first serve, so be on your toes. I’ll do a giveaway each day of the week beginning on Wednesday, January 2. It’ll mostly be whoever comments first, though I might include a trivia contest a couple of times as well. Shipping to USA only, though I’ll consider international if you pay shipping and can pay me through PayPal.

Book: Team 7-Eleven

I’ll tell you this book on the beginnings of American professional road cycling in the 1980s reads good, smells good, and has lots of good photos (color and B&W). I received this book over the weekend and devouted it. I won’t have time to post a review before Interbike, so I’ll just say “thumbs up” and post the press material for now.

If you’d rather skip the marketing fluff and go get the book already, here’s the link to Powell’s Books.

Contest: Cycle Touring book

Last week I mentioned Andrew and Friedel’s Cycle Touring Survival Guide. This week, they’re giving away a free copy to two lucky winners.

Update: The contest is closed and winners have been selected. Random.org has selected “wrycooter” as the comment winner, and @kim_harding as the Twitter winner. Congrats to both of them, and thanks to everybody for participating!
