This review is from: Travels with Rosinante: 5 Years' Cycling Round the World (Hardcover)
Great book, well written and an interesting read. Bernard the author is clearly mad. Whilst most cyclists I know or have read about take great care to minimize weight on their bike and in their luggage, Bernard seems intent on carrying as much as possible and bolting heavy things to his bike. As if trying to cycle over mountain ranges, through deserts and jungle isn't hard enough.
On his trip round the world Bernard gets himself into no end of scrapes, near death experiences and genrally crazy situations. Frankly I'm surprised he survived long enough to write the book.
