"Pakravan's inspiring, often riveting account of his adventure showcases his remarkable optimism and benefits from a pleasing balance of humor and introspection." --Booklist
'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) See all Product description
