Author Tom Allen has pedalled more than 20,000km in over 40 countries since 2007. His blog TomsBikeTrip.com is the number one UK cycle touring resource on the web. This, his fourth book, is a 277-page beginners' guide to two-wheeled adventuring.
The guide covers a vast range of topics without getting bogged down in details. It presents a range of perspectives, rather than the “my way is the best way” approach you’ll find on countless websites and forums. And it is a manual of reassurance as much as a practical guide – because getting to the start line isn’t about knowing everything, but about knowing enough to begin.
Whatever you’re planning and wherever you’re thinking of going – if it involves a bicycle and the spirit of adventure, this book has got you covered.
