26 November 2007: Christmas books special

A Christmas books special with guests George Theohari (author of the newly published Cyclist’s Companion), Guy Andrews (editor of Rouleur) and Graeme Fife (among the UK’s leading cycle writer whose memoirs were published this year). Includes readings from Tim KrabbĂ©’s The Rider, Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men On The Bummel, Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman and Graeme Fife’s play Jam.

Competitions are now closed, with the winners Derek in Peterborough (Merckx won the world champs four times: three as a pro and once as an amateur) and Nouman in East London (Bertrand Russell collided with George Bernard Shaw).
