Books we like to read

I’ve had these on my bookshelf for a while now. I love to read this sort of thing during the winter months. Books about how people have challenged themselves and pushed and pushed to achieve whatever goals they have set themselves. They don’t always have to be about cycling. I’m a big fan of Scott and Shackleton and love reading their accounts of polar adventures. Now Polar exploration is not something I can readily go out and do (even though we had a fair bit of snow this winter) but these two books made me want to ride my bike or at least go out and do stuff rather than curling up in the warmth being lazy and that’s definitely a good thing.

We might start doing some proper book reviews in the future so why not let us know what has inspired you this winter at info@headsetpress.co.uk
