Cycling trips for the over 50's!
on 31 July 2014
Really enjoyed reading this, although it wasn't quite what I expected. I knew it was a travel memoir for a group of men who were aged between 50 and 70, who went to Europe and cycled along the river Danube. But this was just the first trip. They also completed trips in France, Italy and Ireland (and others). The disappointment for me was that I was expecting the Danube trip to be the complete book and I would have liked more detail on this - it sounds fantastic and maybe something I would consider myself in the future. Having said that, the whole book is very much worth reading. It is very well written - partly, I suspect, because the author has worked in journalism - it's intelligent, informative and full of humour, without being silly.
