Jon Day talks on Cyclogeography

This event has already taken place.

Host: Rye Books
Location: Rye Books, 45 Upland Road, London SE22 9EF
Speaker: Jon Day

In Cyclogeography, Jon Day, King's Lecturer, Booker Prize judge and former Cycle Courier, looks at how cycling brings a unique take on our relationship with the physical world. Like a two-wheeled Ian Sinclair, Day looks specifically at how cycling remaps London and at the historical and philosophical implications of understanding a city via the bike.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear Jon talk on this most profuse of subjects – he is a lucid, witty and compelling speaker.

The book is so much more than the memoir of a courier, it is an elegantly written philosophical treatise, and in person Jon is just as engaging.
