Discover the Obsession, Science and Luck Behind the World’s Fastest Cyclists
Michael Hutchinson is obsessed with speed. He will be here at the Bloomsbury Institute on 6th May to tell us about his new book, Faster, and explain why cyclists do what they do, what the riders, their coaches and the boffins get up to behind the scenes, and why the idea of going faster is such an appealing, universal instinct for all of us.
‘Fantastic. An intelligent and personal insight in to the world of elite cycling’ Sir Dave Brailsford
Ever lost out on that elusive pub quiz win because you couldn’t remember how many players in a basketball team? Or how far the penalty mark is from the goal in football? Or the height of a tennis net? Or when the game of badminton was invented?
