Comparable titles include John Kaag's HIKING WITH NIETZSCHE and ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE.

A meditative love letter to the sport of cycling, The Art of Cycling traces the journey of a former professional racer regaining his love for the sport and shows how cycling can shed new light on age-old questions of selfhood, meaning, and purpose.

Interweaving cycling, Western philosophy, and personal narrative, The Art of Cycling provides readers with a deep understanding into the highs and lows of being an elite athlete, the limits of approaching any sporting pursuit from a strictly rational perspective, and how the philosophical and often counterintuitive lessons derived from sport can be applied to other areas of life.
