A practical and inspirational guide to planning every kind of off-road cycling experience, based on the author’s first-hand experience of cycling from the UK to Hong Kong.
Joshua Cunningham spent eleven months cycling from the UK to Hong Kong, a journey that took him through twenty-six countries and across 21,000 kilometres of the Eurasian landmass. He captured thousands of breathtaking photographs and acquired the wealth of invaluable experience he shares here, from how to arrange travel and select the best bike to what to pack for each climate and terrain, and how to choose and navigate the route. Equal parts travelogue and practical guide, this exhilarating account divides the stages of his tour into five chapters, each focusing on a specific geographical environment: forest, desert, mountain, tropical and urban.
Packaged in a travel-friendly format, Escape by Bike will be an essential source of inspiration to cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who is interested in planning their own cycling adventure, large or small.
