ReCycled charts Rich Smith’s remarkable recovery from a universally fatal liver disease when his life was saved by a last minute liver transplant, to him becoming a British, European and World cycling champion and the fastest transplant cyclist in the world.
The book takes the reader through the weird and wonderful world of cycling and introduces some of the hilarious pitfalls and odd ball characters encountered along the way. The reader also gets to meet some truly inspirational people who have overcome appalling illnesses and have taken to the bike to demonstrate their recovery.
Funny and poignant in equal measure, the book is a light hearted and irreverent take on the world of cycling and includes some fiendishly tricky multiple choice questions challenging the reader’s knowledge and attitude towards those who take to the road on two wheels!
This warm and insightful book will appeal to anyone who enjoys a compelling human interest story but if you’ve ever ridden a bike you’re sure to recognise some of the characters… you never know, you may even recognise yourself…
