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!”
