Andrew is currently cycling his third and final crossing of Europe (once more on his bike called Reggie), from the southern tip of the continental mainland on the Isla de las Palomas (Tarifa, Spain) to the northernmost point at Nordkapp (Norway). Daily updates on his journey can be found in the ‘latest news‘ section of the website.
For the duration of his trip (April until the end of July), the ‘wonderful, witty, inspirational’ cycling travelogues ‘Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie‘ and ‘Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie‘ can be downloaded for the special price of just £1.99 / $2.99 / €2.99 on Amazon Kindle.
You can find more details of his route here.
Comments on CyclingEurope.org are always welcome. Alternatively you can interact with Andrew via the Cycling Europe Facebook page or via Twitter (not forgetting Instagram, Flickr and YouTube of course!). If you’d like to offer him a bed for the night or a patch of grass for his tent he’s even on Warmshowers.
The final book of the European cycling trilogy will be published in 2016

What they are saying about ‘Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie’:
“Andrew P. Sykes once again delivers a wryly amusing and inspirational account of his travels on Reggie” “A brilliant book, I can’t put it down… excellent writing style and plenty of humour” “I found his writing made me want to keep turning the pages. His self-deprecating and dry, delightful wit are a joy” “Beautifully written with natural wit and a view on life that anyone, not just cyclists, can associate with.”

“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!”
