About the Author
Danny Bent was born near Buxton in the Peak District into a very loving and supportive family. His father was an international athlete and Danny was necessarily introduced to the attractions and rigours of sport at a very early age, and to cycling (down steps) not long afterwards. He is an international tri-athlete and a bog diver, and has an aptitude for the sort of adventures which require major endurance and a great deal of luck to survive. Fortunately for us, he is also an excellent raconteur, loves life and hugs people whenever possible, which means he gets access to a host of excellent stories and escapades he can roll around his tongue, and entertain us thoroughly, all at the same time.

Travelling through some of the most dangerous countries in Eastern Europe and Asia, whether it's dodging Russian Mafia gangsters or Taliban insurgents, Danny somehow manages to bring out the best in humanity wherever he goes. This really restores your faith in the human race; although his sometimes graphic descriptions of the insanitary conditions and the intestinal consequences resulting from same have completely put me off wanting to visit India!
Read it. Enjoy it. Give some money to Action Aid.
His descriptions of his antics on this epic ride are at different times hilarious, touching and informative. This chronicle of his journey is both eminently readable and absolutely inspiring.
Well done Danny, I can't wait to read you next book, bring it on!
Despite the lack of proof reading this book does draw you in to the author's journey and the joys and hardships it presented him with. It was worth reading.
On the plus side, relatively short chapters, constant new people and new locations make this an easy read, something you can dip in and out of over a period of time without having to make any effort at remembering what you'd read before.
