Product Description

Product Description

On the 29th of April 2008 Matthew Blake pedalled away from his front door in England, with a shiny new bike, a vague idea of how to fix a puncture and a map which could get him as far as Dover. Mixing his own adventures with stories and history from around the globe, this is one man’s account of a modern-era journey of exploration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful account of an incredible ride 2 Feb 2014

I'm not interested in cycling. Haven't been on a bike in years. Despite that i'm so glad I downloaded this book. It's an incredibly easy read. Not in an easy-listening kind of way, but in the way that it flows beautifully and you don't really realise what time it is until you've devoured a dozen chapters.

You feel like you're on the journey with Matthew, feeling danger when he does, learning when he does and enjoying experiences as he does. Highly recommended.

I'll be home just after Christmas kept me entertained many a lonely night in my tent as I read Matts epic solo cycling adventure with great enthusiasm and compared with similar stories to mine as I cycle towards Australia. His honest account of what life is like on a bicycle both physically and mentally kept me gripped with each chapter and shows he's a man with a heart of adventure and great writing ability. Keep it up :)

The prose may not be perfect, but the description of the adventure is a page turner.

This book should be read by anyone contemplating a major cycle tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing tale! 11 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
One day Matt biked into my home in Phnom Penh and as he told me about his trip then, which I followed via his tour blog until I read this book, Matt's incredible journey in this prescripted world we live in is a wonderous adventure captured in this book!
