More About the Author

Robert Wicks is the author of four adventure motorcycling titles from Haynes. He has always had a passion for adventure travel and motorcycles and has worked in the media and sports marketing industries for much of his career, including several years with the Superbike World Championship and MotoGP. An avid outdoor enthusiast and keen photographer, Robert's travels have taken him to more than 50 countries and it has been a long-time personal ambition to see this particular book published.

The latest book in the series is entitled: The World's Great Adventure Routes. "Picking a route is one of the most exciting prospects for any adventure motorcyclist and in this book the world's greatest routes have been compiled into a unique single collection for the first time," says Robert.

The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes presents more than 30 of the greatest routes across the globe, all brought to life by the best collection of adventure motorcycling photography and maps ever assembled in one volume.

Using real-world advice and planning from some of the world's leading adventure riders, this latest book in the acclaimed Haynes adventure motorcycling series offers readers comprehensive insight into the most spectacular, inspiring and challenging adventure routes across the globe. For the really adventurous there are epic trans-continental routes covering thousands of miles but there are also some short, must-see trails for those not wanting to venture too far afield.

Each route is accompanied by outstanding photography and a detailed map, with additional fact boxes on local sights, tips for riding and anecdotes from personal experiences. In every case the text has been compiled by someone who has 'been there and done it', and the contributors include some of the best-known names in adventure motorcycling, people such as Kevin and Julia Sanders, Sam Manicom, Walter Colebatch, Joe Pichler and Andreas Hülsmann.

With more than 300 colour photographs and maps, The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes is designed to inform, excite and inspire.

I love "Behind the Scenes" publications, this one is first class. The diagrams and photographs are excellent, the text is very informative, the author went to a lot of trouble to balance the theme just right, not too simple, but interesting enough to read every word!

What a fantastic book, it is very informative and well presented. There is stacks of information dating from 1929 - about the workings of an international airport. There are chapters about how the runways are constructed, plus atc, security, airline operations, cargo handling, and many more. This book is a welcome addition to my library. If you are interested in aircraft, and airports this book is for you. Fantastic pictures of the airport and aircraft.

Oh I love this book. From the age of 11 until I was 16 I spent every day of my school holidays on Queen's Building plane spotting. Unusual for a girl!! And even now I am a pensioner I still have the love of commercial aircraft and airports. Living near Gatwick I can watch the planes in my garden but this book have brought back some very happy memories apart from showing me what has been going on at Heathrow in the last 20 years.

This is a book that will take a front (Heath)row location on my Aviation book shelf, well written, well laid out and nicely sectioned so as to make puting it down and starting again easy. I will recommend to any aviation buff.

Aviation enthusiast? Love airports, want to learn more about Heathrow? If you answer yes, buy it! Excellent publication in the Haynes style. Hoping Gatwick and Stansted will be on the drawing board for the future. Easy to read and understand. A very worthwhile purchase.
