Praise

This is a street-smart, super-sharp exploration of the ‘soft city’ as seen from the saddle; Jon Day has written a bold and clever book about the zone where capital and cycling collide. It fascinated me from first page to last.
—Robert Macfarlane

There’s a gap in travel writing, and Jon Day has just zipped into it—like a bike courier between white van and black cab. The British capital, he says, has been written about often from the perspective of the rambler and the stroller, but not much from the saddle. He’s started to make good the deficiency with Cyclogeography.
—Michael Kerr, The Telegraph

Jon Day’s ode to the bicycle takes the reader pillion from petrol-choked city to rolling dale in eloquent prose, which at best pedals in beat to the accompanying landscape.
—Nicholas Hogg, The Independent

The book is written in short, punchy chapters…Cyclogeography’s magic lies in the quality of the prose and Day’s skill in looping together disparate threads in a way that feels natural.
—John Sunyer, Financial Times

Armchair cycling turns out to be an exquisitely indolent sport—at least when one has in one’s hands a book as choice as Cyclogeography. Everything about this slender hardback makes it a pleasure to read.
—Kate Kellaway, The Observer
