Can't quite bring myself to give this one four stars, so it's 3+ I guess.

Perfectly readable story, so I suppose my quibble is that it has the feel of being too ambitious in putting so much travel in one book. Towards the end, he seemed to be rushing through the trip to get it over with.

I'd read more of his work. For one thing, I liked his sense of humor (usually).

Great Read!

A perfect mix of humor and adventure. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys travelogues and is interested in Europe.

The stories would make amazing pub conversation, but it didn't make a great book unfortunately.

Interesting but more importantly fun.

This book genuinely made me smile at times with Steven's quips and observations on life a c the different countries he is cycling through.

Bicycle ride around Europe

Not well written account of riding around Europe on a bike. I know he didn't have a lot of time, but I would have liked to read more about each country not just the road conditions!
Richard
A nicely written travel book of a pretty epic adventure around the whole of Europe. I read the printed version and would have liked some photos in the book, but other than that a really good read.
