"This is a major training guide for cyclists from the British cycling legend, and prodigious innovator, Graeme Obree. Graeme Obree is twice the cycling world hour record holder and twice World 4000m pursuit champion. One of the first cycling superstars, he inspired a generation of cyclists. Now in The Obree Way he shares a lifetime of experience. Written in a conversational style rather than a stuffy training manual, the book is full of fascinating insights into technique, training, equipment, psychology and diet that can help make an enthusiastic cyclist good, and a good cyclist great. Read The Obree Way and take your cycling to the next level, whether for the commute, for club cycling or for competition."--Publisher's description
Restless creatures : the story of life in ten movements by Matt Wilkinson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of us never think about how we get from one place to another. For most people, putting one foot in front of the other requires no thought at all. Yet the fact that we and other species are able to do so is one of the great triumphs of evolution. To truly understand how life evolved on Earth, it is crucial to understand movement. This is a bold new argument that the true story of evolution is the story of locomotion, from the first stirrings of bacteria to the amazing feats of Olympic athletes

The issue of drugs and sport has been raised again recently when a number of cyclists in the Tour de France were found to be taking drugs. Some are asking whether we have reached a turning point and whether the rules will have to be changed in the future to allow the safe use of some drugs by athletes. These issues form the basis of the discussion on this program. Studio guests: Graeme O'Bree, world champion cyclist ; Kevin Gosper, Member, Executive Board IOC ; Dr Rob Dawson, Medical Officer, Drugs in Sport Clinic
