Format: Paperback
In this, his second book about cycling in France (see here for book one baguettes and bicycles: a cycling adventure across France (Eurovelo Series: Book 1) ) , Steven and his bike Craig are joined by his wife Cathie and her bike named Jenny. Their journey starts in Arcachon on the Atlantic coast and they cycle to the Mediterranean following the canals and waterways, eating and staying in out of the way villages. You can tell from his writing that having Cathie with him made a great trip even better and he certainly got lost far fewer times with her in charge of the directions to the B&B's. Once they completed their journey they took a car to the Pyrenees where Cathie sensibly let Steven do a spot of col climbing on a hired bike. He is keen to reinforce his belief that cycling up mountains isn't about testosterone and thigh muscles it's about taking the time to see the scenery, a very sensible attitude.

There is plenty of good food chatter, humour (did I mention he talks to his bike?) and practical information included too. I spent a few happy days in this reasonably priced book and I hope Steven and Cathie come back to France again soon.

This book would be great for the armchair traveller and food lover, but will also leave the amateur cyclist thinking about stretching their lycra and having a real cycling adventure. I've got my map out already.

I was sent a copy of this book by the author.

I really enjoyed being transported back to one of my favourite countries, France and the author makes you feel you are there. He and his wife embark upon a cycle ride in the Bordeaux region, stopping at various B and Bs along the way and rating these, along with various meals they eat. It is a gentle and humorous book and I look forward to his next adventure!

The second of two cycling adventures in France this volume includes some pass storming, which the auther loves
but also deals with a tour along cycle paths and canal banks. It's also a description of a tour through the
outstanding cuisine of the region , beter even than the travels of Tom Vernon.

Steven has an entertaining writing style and his books should appeal to cyclists of all types. Not only are they well written, they are well edited too. I will be looking out for more.
