9780856408892: On My Own Two Wheels: Back in the Saddle at 60

When Malachi was diagnosed with diabetes in 2009, just a few months before his sixtieth birthday, he knew he had to take hold of his life and make some changes; dusting down the oily old bicycle in his backyard was the first of these. This memoir tells the personal story of how the author challenged himself to cycle around Ireland during the summer of 2011, following many of the same routes that he took as a keen cyclist thirty years earlier. The book uses the journeys made by Malachi on his bicycle to discuss the author's reflections on growing older and the challenges ageing presents in terms of being able to do what you used to do. And of not losing sight of the pleasure riding a bicycle can give. The book moves between past and present - as the author looks back to a younger self and his first journeys and compares it to an older self and the second journeys - and to his father who was a champion cyclist. This book is accessible and will appeal to a popular audience. The tone is direct, frank, funny and reflective.

Descrizione libro Blackstaff Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 214 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. And yes, I was a sixty-year-old man who wanted to be young again, and that s laughable for there is no turning back the years, but I didn t think it was funny. I wasn t going to try and win the Tour de France. But I was going to try to do what I had been able to do at thirty, and, what the hell, I was going to be a fitter, trimmer and happier old man at the end of it. Four years ago, Donegal-born Belfast-based journalist, broadcaster, and Writer-in-Residence in QUB Malachi O Doherty shook the cobwebs off the old bicycle parked in his backyard and found that he had grown too fat to ride it comfortably. He got rid of it. But in just a few months, everything changed. Malachi, approaching sixty, found that he had type 2 diabetes. Follow Malachi on a journey that takes us along the west coast of Ireland and over the drumlins of County Down as he rediscovers cycling - the frets, the struggles, and most of all, the joys. A wonderful read for anyone 50+ - or of any age - with an interest in cycling and general health and fitness. Codice libro della libreria AGM9780856408892
