A practical and inspiring guide to planning all types of off-road cycling, from close-up “micro-adventures” to global itineraries, based on the author's own epic journeys
From wild hikes to weekends spent following local coastal paths, adventure cycling combines touring, mountain biking and camping to open up exciting new possibilities for two-wheel adventure.
Cycling writer and photographer Joshua Cunningham spent eleven months cycling from London to Hong Kong, a journey that spanned 26 countries and 13,670 miles. During his journey, he captured thousands of photographs of the landscape - many barely touched by humans - and gained an invaluable wealth of experience, from organizing trips and selecting the best bike, to what to pack for each climate and terrain, and how to choose and navigate the your route.
Part travelogue, part practical guide, this gripping account breaks down the stages of Cunningham's journey into five chapters, each focusing on a geographic setting: forest, desert, mountain, tropical, and urban. Packaged in a travel-friendly format, this combination of practical text and inspiring photography will appeal to every bike adventurer.
