Since the publication of Spain to Norway on a Bike Called Reggie in May 2017, the speaking tour has taken in the Cycle Touring Festival in Clitheroe, Oxford, Bristol, The Immrama Festival of Travel Writing in Lismore, Ireland, London, York, Cambridge and an audience of hundreds in the Cotswolds… but after a short late-summer pause, the tour restarts this weekend in… Brighouse! The Yorkshire town’s Arts Festival kicked off a few days ago and continues until the end of the weekend. My own contribution will be hosted by Brighouse Library and is FREE! You can register to attend via Eventbrite or just turn up on the day – Saturday 14th October. The fun starts at 2pm.
“Meet Andrew: French teacher, writer and long-distance cyclist. He’s also a lover of those quirky, humorous travelogues that meander comically from one minor adventure to the next. So writing about a long-distance cycling trip across Europe from southern England to southern Italy seemed the natural thing for him to do once his small-time odyssey was over. The result was Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie.
In 2013, he embarked upon a second trip from Greece to Portugal following the Mediterranean coast; Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie was published in 2014. A third trip was completed in 2015 from the southern tip of Spain to the northernmost point of Norway – arguably his most daring trip yet – from Europe’s geographical south to its northernmost point.. The book, Spain to Norway on a Bike Called Reggie, was published by Summersdale in spring 2017.”
