we've had to cancel this event. best wishes frank, we hope to see
Join us as we welcome Frank Strack, founder of the Velominati
and author of "The Rules", to mark the launch of his new book: THE
HARDMEN: Legends of the Cycling Gods.
Frank will give a brief talk on the history and heroes of the
book, followed by an opportunity to pick up your own signed copy. A
great way to get a bit of cycling into your lunchtime!
The book is packed with the true, epic stories of cycling's
greatest heroes, and makes for perfect winter motivation to get out
there and ride no matter what.
We were pleased to find that there are no national or gender
restrictions to the definition of a 'hardman'. A host of cycling
greats are included, from the hardman's hardman Sean Kelly to my
own personal hero, the great Beryl Burton.
40 cyclists are included, all detailed with the wit and warmth
you'd expect from the Velominati. This is no dry history book,
although it is packed with true stories, it's a set of cracking
tales of valour and determination that will appeal to any cyclist
and equally entertain the armchair fan.
