About the Author
Bob Winstanley was born and brought up in Stetchford, Birmingham during the 1930's and '40s. His love of long-distance cycling began around 1950 when a friend suggested they cycle to Wales. In a week, they went 500 miles to Pwllheli and back and amazed at the distance they had covered, a passion was born. Bob is now based in Thailand, returning to England yearly to visit family and friends. England is an ideal place after all to start his current cycling trips, such as touring through Spain, as he did this summer. At home in Thailand he leads a group of ex-pat Sunday cyclists and regularly goes out for a ride of eighty miles or more. Bob is now an incredible seventy-eight year old.

Some months later I have finished the book and its incredible what he achieved at his time of life. Alas the transfer to kindle was at times very frustrating with missing text and duplicated paragraphs. Are you still with us Bob?
The often extreme dangers he faced in unsafe parts of the world, the sights he saw, the desperate poverty stricken people struggling to survive, the endless throngs of women desperate to escape poverty by marrying a Westerner.
Bob isn't afraid to speak his mind so his views on religion, sex & just about everything else are all there in graphic & often comical detail. Not to be missed!
