    I m really enjoying reading this book I thought I was quite well informed about women in cycling but I ve discovered a few amazing women I hadn t heard of before Recommended reading for anyone who loves to read about riding as much as they like getting out on the bike.

    Ride the Revolution is an enjoyable, well thought out book on the entire breadth of women s cycling Each section covers a different area of women s cycling, which ranges from new professional women in the sport to experienced athletes returning to the sport, all the way to a chef for a women s cycling team and photographers, journalists, and fans This holistic view of the sport is not only fun but also educational You can see the beauties of the sport and the areas in which it needs to improve better cycling clothes for non pro riders, better coverage of women s races, better pay for women athletes Another highlight of the book is the way in which each story is structured Some are interviews, some are first person narratives, and all are told in the women s diverse voices You close the book feeling like you really know the women featured A final note this is not a girly book, it s a cycling book So don t avoid it if you re a man You ll enjoy the blood, sweat, and gears aspect of this book and hopefully will better understand the growing pains of the sport All in all, one of my favorite books on cycling, and it has inspired me to support my favorite sport and get out riding my bike.

    The mix of different chapter writers telling different personal stories is both interesting and inconsistent The characters and stories, many of which I had not known before reading this book, provide a good introduction into women s cycling From those introductions, I joined my selected social media channels to learn even about women s cycling in real time.

    I found the stories of women and cycling fun to read You can read a single chapter and take inspiration from women who fly, train, coach, cook, fail, succeed, and enjoy I learned so much from the interviews and writings.
