It’s not about the Bike


I have read and reread this most riveting (auto)biography of 6 time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong…everytime I read it it moves me, it shakes me up and makes me want to achieve something.
Last October I read it in one sitting…it was that rivetting.
A testament to what grit and determination can achieve.
Armstrong says it was anger that drove him atleast in the initial part of his career…in my case I guess it is pain that drives me.
The title of the book says it all…
“IT IS NOT ABOUT THE BIKE”…(it never is) .
I went up and down with every event…from the agony of the illness to the exhilaration of the victories. I was almost in tears at a couple of places …not when he describes the treatment
but when he describes the victories.
A book I would recommend to everyone…
