It all started with a cycle along the spine of England in 2009, then in 2010 a cycle south across Europe and a follow-up book. In 2013 I crossed Europe again from east to west, on the same bike, Reggie…
The journey continues in 2014. The second book – Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie – is due out in July and there is a third (and final?) European bicycle journey to plan for 2015 or 2016 from Santiago de Compostela, Spain to Trondheim, Norway, perhaps even to North Cape to see the midnight sun… Stayed tuned!
“Inspired by Olympic athletes, secondary school teacher & naive touring cyclist Andrew Sykes set off on a trans-continental cycling adventure from his home in southern England along pilgrimage route to Rome & beyond. A comical tale recounting the highs & lows of six weeks in the saddle, for cyclists and non-cyclists alike!”
