Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder is an anthology of thirty articles written by an amateur cyclist over a period of ten years. The collection exhibits the madness that engulfs those who descend into cycling obsession, celebrating the average cyclist living in a world defined by the pros. The writings range from fanciful musings concerning the Tao of singlespeeding to lengthy descriptions of end-to-end rides in Britain and Ireland. Mountain biking, road cycling and all sorts of other cycling events are chronicled along the way. Each is written in a lighthearted style designed to bring the reader into the author’s world which is often littered with incident and humour. Within the pages the reader will find a loose ticklist of events to ride, bikes to own and challenges to take on. Each described in the author’s own inimitable style.

Dave Barter is a British cyclist. He likes to think of himself as an all rounder having tried many two wheeled disciplines and fallen off most of them.

    An excellent series of short tales from the world of the amateur cyclist - I could relate to them all (well, almost) and they confirm my self-diagnosis that I too have OCCD! Thanks Dave - I look forward to the sequel. BTW, I loved your Mum’s review - I now see where the sense of humor comes from! Simon

    Very entertaining read that often had me thinking, yes been there, experienced that but on a mental rather than physical level. Brilliant to have at the bedside to be able to have a little happy time before sleeping. Most resonant moment - virtual partner telling you "off course" , could have been there! Thank you for entertaining me so well, a must for any one who enjoys cycling.
  • Very enjoyable read
