To Hell on a Bike: Riding Paris-Roubaix: The Toughest Race in Cycling

‘Paris-Roubaix is the best race in the world and knocks spots off the Tour de France.’ Sir Bradley Wiggins.

Paris-Roubaix. The Hell of the North. The ultimate monument in cycling’s Classics. More than 150 miles across dusty or muddy roads, much of it puncture-inducing and bone-breaking cobblestones. Even professional riders blanche at the very mention of it. Tour de France winners (with the notable exception of Wiggins in 2014) make their excuses from it. So why on earth would an amateur even dare to attempt it?

In To Hell on a Bike, Iain MacGregor does just that and as he prepares for the ride of his life, he explores the history and culture of this extraordinary race. With insights from legends of the sport, trainers, mechanics and fellow writers, as well as those who have maintained the traditions of Paris-Roubaix since its inception over a century ago, it is the ultimate story of the ultimate cycling challenge.
