Product description

Review

'A moment of self-realisation among the commuters on London Bridge triggers a selfless and enduring determination in Reza Pakravan, a city financier, to live his own life in a way that makes a positive difference to others. Kapp to Cape is the story of an epic journey of self-discovery, self-discipline and triumph against all the odds. It reveals the best of the human spirit and reminds us, yet again, that a life well-lived is never about the destination: it’s about the ride. '

(Deborah Bull, CBE, dancer, writer and broadcaster)

‘An absolute page-turner about Reza’s courageous world-record bid. The inner journey is every bit as fascinating as the outer as he candidly shares his doubts, struggles, challenges and triumphs while navigating some of the world’s most cyclist-unfriendly regions and roads. Recommended!’

(Roz Savage, world-record ocean rower and author of Rowing the Atlantic)

‘I am literally lost for words at the scale of this heroic achievement. To the benefit of his readers, Reza isn’t.’

(Tim Moore, author of Gironimo!, You Are Awful (But I Like You) and French Revolutions)

‘It took me over a year to cycle to South Africa. Reza managed it in just 100 days – that is extraordinary.’

(Alastair Humphreys, adventurer, author and motivational speaker)

'A thrilling and beautiful book. The journey that Reza undertakes – both physically and mentally – is astonishing.'

(Ed Stafford, explorer)

‘A brilliantly candid, funny and thought-provoking escape to the wild. Through Reza’s unique cultural lens we are taken on the adventure of a lifetime, and left reflecting on our own sense of purpose and adventure.’

(Mark Beaumont, author of The Man Who Cycled the World)

To say that Reza "likes a goal" is the starting point for this race against reason.
Why would you ride a bike across the globe when you can fly?
Why leave London city wages and risk your health & well being?
You understand and your understanding takes you across the globe, on a bike, with Reza and Steve on a roller coaster that has hot cold high low bullets malaria and a genuine sense of what a life can be when honesty and hard work combine with belief in better.
Treat yourself to Reza's epic journey from the comfort of your favourite chair.

A splendid read. Very now.

A brave journey of self discovery. The courage that has taken Reza to leave a comfortable life of city's glitz and glamour and go on a journey both in literal and imaginative sense is awe-inspiring.
A factual documentary with the pull of an excellent fiction!

I enjoyed exploring the countries and cultures on this race to Cape Town through Reza's eyes. An epic journey under any circumstances, the push to complete this journey within 100 days to achieve a Guiness World Record gave it extra momentum. I would (and have) recommended this book!
