• In this warm, gently wise book, Hutchinson tells of his attempt at the Hour, the history of the record, and the men who have claimed it ... Whether he added his name to that illustrious list is unimportant ... because, as with all great quest stories, this is not about the destination, but the journey

    Angus Batey, The Times
  • Hutchinson proves as good a writer as he is rider (praise indeed) - congenial, funny and insightful ... A very fine way indeed to spend an hour, any hour

    Matt Seaton, Guardian
  • Has the rare quality in any sports-writing of propelling the reader into the intensity of the sporting moment itself

    David Horspool, Times Literary Supplement
  • Sometimes painful, often hilarious... One of the most insightful and entertaining accounts of the cycling world to make it into print

    Cycling Weekly
  • Constantly absorbing, very funny... Michael Hutchinson pulls off a real blinder

    Daily Telegraph
