The Road Headed West is a different kettle of fish. Leon McCarron comes across as a nice kid, who is willing to have a go at a massive challenge. No support team, no expensive kit and apparently no idea at times what he has let himself in for. He is easygoing company, and I found the book a pleasure to read - I was often reluctant to put it down.
I would certainly recommend this book as very good read and you don't have to be into cycling to enjoy it.
Beautifully written, well paced with lots of amazing places, curious characters and different experiences.
As a keen cyclist and micro adventurer looking to one day upgrade to full blown explorer, I can't recommend this book enough.
It will both inspire and inform you and so far kept me interested throughout.
Already pre-ordered Leon's new book and other books he has been involved in.
A good, easy going read
