Brilliant - buy it!,
This review is from: Moods of Future Joys: Around the World by Bike - Part 1 (Paperback)
I love cycling and I love Africa so I guess I was bound to love this book. It has a very easy style, a good mix of humour and serious comment, and above all is an honest account which includes Alastair's anxieties, fears and insecurities.
If you've ever wanted to undertake a long distance bike ride but thought you have to be very brave to do it, read this for inspiraton. If you like the thought of bike touring but, like me, also like the comfort of your home, read it on a cold winter's day by a nice fire and be inspired to cycle more (when the weather's warmer, obviously!).
I'm now in the middle of the book of the second part of his journey which is equally entertaining. These are definitely part of my 'best books about cycle touring ever'.
