Toasting those Gods!
Two things are forever constant; cycling & beer. The varieties are endless (beer that is) that it's a joy to have one with a good read. I found two that works.
Belgian white beer Hoegaarden (pronounced whogarden) is a crisp 5% brew that has an distinct & quenching taste. One book worth mentioning is The Sweat of the Gods by Benjo Maso. It's an captivating read on a century of cycle racing. Maso subdivides cycling with influences between: the media (newspapers & TV), industry and the stars of all the riders. He writes with passion pinpointing and focusing the true love of cycle racing.
The book & beer are both enjoyable by the end you're asking for more. Of course, there's always more beer and Maso has another book I want called, We Were All Gods - The Tour de France of 1948...
