Or maybe the reader, Andrew Wincott, tries too hard.
His description of cycling the gruelling 2,256-mile Tour de France course on his own, ahead of the real thing, is great fun, full of his usual self-deprecating witticisms and wisecracks. But let's face it, bicycles are less funny than donkeys. Or maybe the reader, Andrew Wincott, tries too hard.

French Revolutions Tim Moore.
Self-confessed loafer Tim Moore, seduced by the speed and glamour of the biggest annual sporting event in the world, sets out to cycle the Tour de France. Racing old men on butchers' bikes and being chased by cows, Moore soon resorts to standard race tactics - cheating and drugs - in a hilarious and moving tale of true adventure.
His sporting career cut short by rumour and innuendo, Tim Moore now writers for the Sunday Times, the Observer, the Financial Times and Esquire
His sporting career cut short by rumour and innuendo, Tim Moore now writers for the Sunday Times, the Observer, the Financial Times and Esquire. He lives quietly with his wife and three children in West London, entertaining them with nightly recitations of the critical praise lavished on his first book, Frost on My Moustache. His new book, Do Not Pass Go is due to be published in October 2003.
French Revolutions has many similarities to A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, a book I enjoyed last year. Overall, French Revolutions entertains and encourages the reader to think about taking on their own adventure. Each covers the adventures of an ambitious self-powered traveler attempting a journey for which they are completely ill-equipped. Both have a heavy dose of comedy and sarcasm, poking fun at people they cross paths with and cursing treacherous terrain, but ultimately saving the most ridicule for themselves during the depths of their ineptitude. Both immediately plot and execute shortcuts to cheat days off their trips.
French Revolutions is Tim Moore's funniest book to date. It is also one of the funniest sports books ever written. Les. onnect with the author.
Conquer" may not be quite the right word. He cheats when he can, pops the occasional hayfever pill for an ephedrine rush (a fine old Tour tradition), sips cheap wine from his water bottle, and occasionally weeps on the phone to his wife. French Revolutions is Tim Moore's funniest book to date.
Cycling the Tour de France. Moore observes a changing France as he rides; small towns are dying, and local cycle clubs ride with a casualness that underlies a national softening. Moore's expertise on Tour history carries the narrative; from Paul Kimmage's race laundry tips to Bernard Hinault's champagne-filled water bottles, interesting detail abounds.
