Product description

Review

...I raced through the second half... chuckling at their encounters with scary assassins and Bob's money-saving find of the cheapest hotels - one of them turning out to be a brothel. --Lynn News, December 6, 2009

Along the way - adventure, danger, hazards, trials, tribulations, humour and some nudity, all told in Bob's self-deprecating, laid-back style. -- Lincolnshire Free Press, December 1, 2009

Bob Goddard is a veteran motorcyclist but when he and his wife Viv rode to Bucharest and back, they wondered if it was a journey too far... -- Eastern Daily Press, November 28, 2009

... the couple could not have foreseen the horrendous storms, widespread flooding, 'nigh-suicidal' driving and awful roads that made their 5,000-mile trip seem almost impossible to complete. -- Eastern Daily Press, December 10, 2009

What would possess an otherwise sane grandmother to forsake her knitting and ride a powerful motorcycle to the Black Sea and back, tackling the worst roads, most atrocious weather and most dangerous riding on the way?

A love of children, a UK charity and an adventurous husband, it would seem, judging by the book of their travels published this week.

'Beyond Bucharest' by Bob Goddard tells the tale of his and wife Viv's extraordinary journey on two motorbikes, through 12 countries and 16 borders, to help raise publicity in Romania and Bulgaria for UK charity EveryChild. Their ride through storm, flood and tempest was almost a challenge too far. They even spent an inadvertent night in a brothel! -- The Round, December 2009

From the Back Cover

It sounded simple enough: emulate their screen heroes by riding motorbikes to Eastern Europe in aid of a children's charity. But Bob & Viv Goddard were nervous grandparents, not fit youngsters on sponsored bikes with a back-up crew.

Their ride to Bucharest and beyond, across twelve countries and sixteen border crossings, through storm, flood and tempest, was almost a challenge too far...

Ride with them along the Road To Hell, into the City of Nightmares and through the Valley of Death. Okay, that last one might be stretching the truth just a tad.

Join them for an inadvertent night in a brothel. Laugh with them at the absurdities of life on the road. Hop on board for the adventure of a lifetime... and hold on tight!

Royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to UK charity EveryChild.
