LongDistanceThe Long Distance Cyclists’ Handbook, by Simon Doughty ★★★★

I purchased this book from Powell’s Bookstore. It is written from a British perspective, easily seen on the cover where the cyclists are headed towards you on the right side of the road. Doughty covers the whole gamut of long distance cycling, with touring being only a small aspect of that. He discusses bicycles and equipment, training, nutrition, and safety on the road. The book is well written and well organized, but not oriented around a specific type of cycling, thus is not a book that applies to many people. There are more specific touring books or long-distance road racing books that better. It is nice to see things from a British perspective, which is slightly different from the contents of a cycling book written in the USA.
