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

When Malachi was diagnosed with diabetes just a few months before his sixtieth birthday, he knew he had to make some changes. This memoir tells the story of how he 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.

About the Author:

Malachi O'Doherty was born in Muff, County Donegal, in 1951 and grew up in west Belfast. He has made his living mostly as a freelance journalist and broadcaster, appearing on the BBC's Sunday Sequence and Talkback programmes, writing regularly for the Belfast Telegraph and was Writer in Residence at Queen's University Belfast. He is the author of a number of books including I Was a Teenage Catholic (2003), The Telling Year (2007) and Under His Roof (2009), a series of vignettes about his father. In 2008, Malachi, approaching sixty, found that he had type 2 diabetes. This inspired him to shake the cobwebs off the old bicycle parked in his backyard and rediscover cycling - the frets, the struggles, and most of all, the joys. is book, On My Own Two Wheels, is a wonderful read for anyone 50+ - or of any age - with an interest in cycling and general health and fitness.
