There are several levels to this book: Annes journey as travels around the world after having not cycled since she was a child (she was 55 when she headed off), wonderful stories about the roads she was travelling on (Roman roads from the UK to Italy, then following Alexander the Greats conquests, the Silk Road and the paths of the pioneers in Australia and the reverse of the ones in America), as well as little anecdotes about people, places she meets/see, and her life prior to the journey.
Well written, flows beautifully and unlike some books Ive read, doesnt go too much into what she packed/bike specifications, or waffle on about nothing for pages.
Buy this though, whether you want a cycling book, or simply an interesting travel book.
