No Better Complete Himalyan Cycling Guide., 5 Dec 2009
This is a long overdue view of what I consider to be one of the most complete, refreshing and informative cycling guides written of its type.
Laura poured her heart and soul into this fascinating trip through various Himalayan regions and having cycled one small part with her I can sincerely vouch for her meticulous map making, research, detail and bravery. Not forgetting her extraordinary metronome like ability to cycle any long climb thrown at her in all sorts of weather and temperatures.
The accessible humour and cheer that accompany the writing style complete a book that can be read not only as the practical guide it was intended for cyclists with a reasonable level of fitness, but also for arm chair enthusiasts who would simply like to experience some of the journey and its magic.
If you are planning on an unsupported ride in any of the regions featured in this book, there is no alternative.
