Beast the Emperor & the Milkman
Beast the Emperor & the Milkman
Every nation shapes sport to test the character traits it most admires.

In The Beast, the Emperor and the Milkman, committed Belgophile and road cycling obsessive Harry Pearson takes you on a journey across Flanders, through the lumpy horizontal rain, up the elbow juddering cobbled inclines, past the fans dressed as chickens and the shop window displays of constipation medicines, as he follows races big, small and even smaller through one glorious, muddy spring.

Ranging over 500 years of Flemish and European history, across windswept polders, along back roads and through an awful lot of beer cafes, Pearson examines the characters, the myths and rivalries that make Flanders a place where cycling is a religion and the riders its lycra-clad priests.

Big Loop Biking Coastal NZ
Big Loop Biking Coastal NZ
In August 2015, Dunc Wilson became the first person to circumnavigate New Zealand on a bike. This 10,940 km journey followed one rule: cycle the closest available route to the coastline.

The Big Loop candidly details Wilson's 240-day cycling adventure, through native bush, ragged coastlines, farm stations and more - demonstrating how acquainting oneself with our country is best achieved under 100 km/h.
