The British humour and the wordplays in this book can be difficult to understand - especially if English is not your first language. I had to read some sentences a few times to make sure that the author was making a joke. I only started to appreciate at halfway of the book. Overall, a nice little funny book about cycling to read. There is a lot of interesting things to learn.
