Obsessive Compulsive Cycling Disorder is an anthology of thirty articles written by an amateur cyclist over a period of ten years. The collection exhibits the madness that engulfs those who descend into cycling obsession, celebrating the average cyclist living in a world defined by the pros. The writings range from fanciful musings concerning the Tao of singlespeeding to lengthy descriptions of end-to-end rides in Britain and Ireland. Mountain biking, road cycling and all sorts of other cycling events are chronicled along the way. Each is written in a lighthearted style designed to bring the reader into the author’s world which is often littered with incident and humour. Within the pages the reader will find a loose ticklist of events to ride, bikes to own and challenges to take on. Each described in the author’s own inimitable style.

Dave Barter is a British cyclist. He likes to think of himself as an all rounder having tried many two wheeled disciplines and fallen off most of them.

    Dave, an absolute cracker of a read. Even on the sunshine coast in australia, the stories and laughs reminded me of past riding experiences. Your story telling is a gift and your youtube clips are just as good. ".....Stu, you know where i am ......." Hilarious. Rob

    What a wonderful piece of "drivel". You decided to call your book that not me! Incredibly inspirational piece of work and if doesn't make a "noob" like myself to want to go out and ride, nothing in this world will. Dave, if you're ever in Sydney... Australian one that is, please let me know and I'll do my best to find a pint of a proper ale. That is after a long ride. Thanks again for a wonderful read!

    If you love cycling, and enjoy reading about the joy and pain that other cyclists experience, this is the book for you. Dave Barter doesn't pretend to be anything more than a regular guy who happens to love his cycling (there are more of us than you could count). What he does so well is tell his stories that share all the funny, odd, scary, exhilarating, breathless, frustrating, uplifting, ordinary, cold, wet and miserable (but ultimately enjoyable) moments we've all been through out on the roads and trails. And he does it all with a modest wit that I found hugely entertaining. I love it when I read a passage in a book and can't help but laugh out loud. It makes me want to go back to read the whole thing again. 5 stars.
