Really enjoyable read

I would recommend this book to anybody interested in travel

Wonderful cycling travelogue

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I love cycling and it's very difficult to cycle long distances in our crazily crowded metropolis that is Mumbai with no cycling infrastructure. So traveling with Andrew on his epic journey with the minds eye was a wonderful experience. It makes me dream of undertaking such a journey myself. Great read, highly recommended.

Enjoyed this - probably not quite as much as the Andrew's 1st book, but that is probably because I read them back to back as I enjoyed the 1st one so much!

Will definitely read the 3rd book, but will read a different genre in between!

Great book - highly recommended!

Great book, very well written covering the challenges of the journey and some great information on the destinations. A pleasure to read and with each chapter covering a day of the adventure it's easy to pick up and put down. Great read for those who like cycling adventures. Well done Andrew.. looking forward to the next instalment.

An excellent follow-up to Andrew's first book. He's currently part way through his next epic ride from the bottom of Spain to the top of Norway, so we'll hopefully have a third book sometime next year. Highly recommended.

He’s also a lover of those quirky, humorous travelogues that meander comically from one minor adventure to the next. So writing about a long-distance cycling trip across Europe from southern England to southern Italy seemed the natural thing for him to do once his small-time odyssey was over.
