6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By I. Roberts on 28 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is getting increasingly hard to get a-hold of these days. A MUST READ though Ladies and Gentlemen. Hibell, in the cycle touring world is a legendary figure. Pretty much went everywhere there is to go on his bike. This book is only a few short snippets of his adventures and doesn't "romanticise" the fact that at times, it was a horribly hard slog ! Word is, Hibell was going to pen another novel. Will never happen though which is a real shame as Ian Hibell was killed in Greece in August 2008 by a street racing Greek who then fled the scene of the accident. A real loss as far as I am concerned. Read this book and enjoy !

A timeless classic ! there's a reason this is hard to find & a bit pricey, that's because you'll not want to part with it when you've finished reading it. A really good read. If you think your own riding is tough you'll be amazed at this story & reconsider your own exploits. Unbelievable riding conditions & environments with a romantic twist to the tale. It's a great book & unlike anything else I've read under cycling genre. BRILLIANT BOOK.

Crazy man travels world by bike 6 Mar. 2004
By Greg Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
So you'd think a guy bold enough to hop on his bike and go touring for up to a year at a time would have alot to say, and want to write about it. Among the mysteries of this man is that he had someone else write the book for him. Having done alot of bicycle touring myself this struck me as odd as the experience stimulates one to have much to say about it. However, he could be simply a very poor writer, and either way the result is impressive.
The book chronicles several voyages he did by bike: Alaska to Tierra del Fuego (Chile), a nordic country to South Africa, and a trans-Amazon trip. On each of these trips, there are phenomenal descriptions of run-ins with locals, some good, many not. He is chased by spear-throwing africans (really), he crosses a 35 mile swamp in Colombia by canoe, he arranges to have a cycling companion for a leg of the trip but after a falling out they race one another across the Sahara. The adventures come thick and intriguing, and this is not a work of fiction so it's difficult to believe the things he pulls off. One realizes in the course of this book that this man is truly not sane, it's one thing to say this, another to realize it's true about someone. At one point on a tour he passes within a couple hundred yards of his family home, his parents inside, and does not stop because he "had to get somewhere". Perhaps an addiction to movement, or an inability to give up adventure. You be the judge, if you can find a copy to read.

Classic Hibell stories, first read this 20 years ago ... 24 Dec. 2014
By Martin B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Classic Hibell stories, first read this 20 years ago, before I started long touring trips, so can appreciate what he achieved. Tragic that he did not write more before he was killed on his bike in Greece
000 miles on the bike and his re-telling of some of his stories is amazing. 12 Sept. 2014

That Ian Hibell was nuts! He met a tragic end but 250,000 miles on the bike and his re-telling of some of his stories is amazing.
