Being a closet adventure cyclist this book really appealed to me especially as Steven spends almost as much time describing the food and patisseries he fuels himself with on his journey as he does the wonderful scenery he sees. His delight and excitement at a good three course formula lunch or dinner was contagious. I think I would get on well with Steven.
I found his writing style gave an easy, entertaining read that made me feel I could do something like this too. I especially loved his little finalé to each chapter - `What I should have said' - there were some great little laugh-out-loud funnies to end each day on his bike.
See also his second book bordeaux and bicycles (Eurovelo Series: Book Two) another great read.
The chapters were short and uninspiring with a quirky summary at the end of each that soon became irritating. The writer apparently is also a children's author and I'm wondering if it was showing.
