Earthquakes, guns, bears, rattlesnakes and tortoises - oh, and digital toilets… take a tour of the globe with five epic bicycle adventures:
Tierra Del Fuego to Buenos Aires through the wilds of Patagonia: ever wondered what it’s like to try cycling into a wind that is, literally, strong enough to blow you off your feet?
Canada to Mexico: billed as the world’s toughest mountain bike tour, follow the US continental divide along the crest of the Rocky Mountains dodging rogue bears and rattlesnakes on the way.
St Malo to Budapest: follow four of Europe’s greatest rivers, the Loire, Moselle, Rhine and Danube to the capital of the old Hapsburg empire. Just for fun, try it on a recumbent tricycle.
Hokkaido and Kyushu: tour the extremities of Japan, wooden castles, earthquakes, volcanoes and very strange toilets.
Bonus material: A journal of a quick jaunt from Land’s End to John O’Groats, adventure in our own backyard.
Whether you’re a seasoned traveller, just thinking of planning your first long distance trip on a bicycle or an armchair voyager who prefers to take your adventure with a cup of tea and a soft cushion, this collection of cycling tales will make you laugh, make you wince, and perhaps inspire you to take off on an adventure of your own…
Funny, engaging and informative.
Whether you like your adventures from the comfort of an armchair or perched on a saddle you'll love it...
