Black Grape's debut album, It's Great When You're Straight?Yeah, is a surreal, funky, profane, and perversely joyous album, overflowing with casual eclecticism and giddy humour.

Journalist, television presenter and best-selling author Ned Boulting presents for the first time an honest, self-effacing walk through the world of Bikeology. What drives the cyclist (apart from a sturdy, well-oiled chain) to such ecstasies of endurance? What curious, deep-rooted passions are aroused by the sight of a simple pair of padded shorts? And what on earth is a derailleur? From the humble commuter to the winner of the Tour de France, Boulting takes an off-centre look at what it means to ride a bike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his fourteen summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the sport's biggest name including no less than Cavendish, Wiggins, Froome and of course Armstrong. A breakneck descent through the history of the sport followed by a lung-bursting climb into the present day - all two-wheeled life is here. Keep your wits about you and be ready to compete in the ultimate test of bicycle maintenance against Olympian gold-medallists Sir Chris Hoy, Chris Boardman and perhaps a few others...
