About the Author
Harriet and Neil Pike met trekking in Chile in 2002 and together began exploring the world's mountains on foot. A chance Caspian Sea ferry encounter with a cyclist in 2007 led to a switch to cycle touring, and a trip across Europe was followed by a few years in the Andes and Himalaya, during which time they fell in love with riding on traffic-free dirt roads. Neil spends hours poring over maps and scouring satellite images for routes; Harriet is the gear geek and team bike mechanic. They blog at pikesonbikes.com and run the Andes route website andesbybike.com .

Quite a bit of changes from the second issue but not a different animal either.
If in doubt - dont be, its well worth the price
Pete, North West England.
As I own an earlier version of the book, I simply intended to read the new and 'updated' bits but I was hooked from the first to the final page. The format remains enjoyable and easy to follow which will also help make it a source of reference when looking for knowledge and guidance going forward and prior to any of my own adventures.
I found the practical information really helpful and I know I will return to the been-there-and-done-it travel honed words of wisdom frequently.
The route outlines, wonderful photographs and the 'tales from the saddle' are inspiring and they certainly gave me the urge to want to jump on the bike and dream about what could, and might, be …
A fantastic book which I recommend highly.
