1 continent, 6000 kilometres, 10 countries, 9 weeks, 4 pannier bags, 1 man, no detailed plan... and a bike called Reggie.
Secondary school teacher Andrew Sykes moves out of the classroom, climbs onto his bicycle and sets off along the route of the EuroVelo 8, from the southern tip of Greece to the Atlantic coast of Portugal.
While in Athens he visits the Parthenon to take in the full splendor of the monument. This is followed by a visit to the Acropolis Museum which further helps him appreciate the Parthenon Sculptures and their troubled history. The author briefly states his views on the subject before continuing with his trip along the med.
This is more than just a cycling tale of border crossings and big hills, as our would-be adventurer perspires his way through a hot and sticky mix of Mediterranean landscapes, life and culture. Join Andrew as he travels Along The Med on a Bike Called Reggie: an inspirational and light-hearted travelogue for cyclists and non-cyclists alike.
Please note a paperback version will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.
