I'm planning, God willing, a big charity ride from Ireland to Turkey next year so I need as much help, info and advice a possible. This book has everything I need to know and much more. A great read and I thouroughly recommend it.
A great update to Stephen Lords's cycle touring bible! I have both the first and second editions and I am glad I bought the third. While the first three parts covering equipment and practicalities remain similar to the last edition, they have been updated and added to. The next section of route outlines has been given a new perspective and a refresh with great updates on the areas now open to cyclists and those that have become more difficult for the adventure tourer. There are inspiring new 'Tales from the Saddle' in the final part that make you want to take off tomorrow! With great new photos and a colour introduction, this book is worth buying even if you have read a previous edition. Thank you Stephen, Neil and Harriet!
