Book Description

30 Sep 1997
Many climbers dedicate a lifetime to the conquest of the Alpine peaks over 4000 metres high, but Martin Moran and Simon Jenkins set out to climb all 75 of them in one continuous journey. Furthermore, they shunned motorized transport, and instead used bicycles to travel from one starting point to the next. Faced with blizzards, white-outs and thunderstorms, and fighting hunger, exhaustion and near-despair, the two men succeeded in their attempt, covering more than 1000km, including 70,000 metres of ascent, in just 52 days. This is Moran's account of the journey, interspersed with extracts from Jenkins's diary.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 men, 4 wheels, 52 days, 75 peaks. 25 May 2010
Would you Adam and Eve it? These two intrepid adventurers set out to ascend all 75 hills over 4000m in Les Alpes. Not for these two the simple air fare of a squeezy jet flight to Geneva or a train or even a motor car. Their chosen mode of transport was what the French call 'Un Bicyclette' - Shanks Pony.
They travelled between the peaks in a well described adventure that relates well to the reader and makes for good, entertaining reading.
Quite simply a ripping yarn Gentlemen.
