Tomorrow We Ride
Jean Bobet's brother, Louison, won the Tour de France three times, and Jean rode the race, and many others, with him. Tomorrow, We Ride is his memoir of a life in cycling and it is, quite simply, among the best books ever written about cycling.
On Tomorrow, We Ride:
"Mousehold Press and Sport and Publicity have published a succession of outstanding books in recent years, and this latest is no exception. Jean Bobet was an anglophile who did much to encourage those early British pioneers on the continent. His brother, Louison, was a cycling superstar and the first ever rider to win the Tour de France three years in succesion. Their story is magical and with Jean's love of our language it is high time an English edition was published. It is a marvellous read."
- Phil Liggett
"A moving account of how two lowly Breton 'ploucs' upheld French honour during an era of great champions, epic Alpine battles, and the hard realities of postwar Europe"
- Luke Edwardes-Evans, cycling editor and journalist
"His story is of courage and disappointment, of highs and of lows and of two young Breton brothers who set out together on a road to cycling glory. It's a wonderful read that's just as inspiring as all those superb old Tour mags from years ago."
- Roger St Pierre, cycling journalist
