A Bike Ride: 12,000 Miles Around the World, by Anne Mustoe

 

Ref: G 978-0863696503

When ex-headmistress Anne Mustoe gave up her job, bought a bike and took to the road, she couldn’t even mend a puncture. 12,000 miles and 15 months later, she was home. Her epic solo journey took her around the world, through Europe, India, the Far East and the United States. From Thessaloniki to Uttar Pradesh, from Chumphon to Singapore, she faced downpours, blizzards and blistering deserts, political turmoil and amorous waiters – alternated with great kindness from strangers along the way.

I was 54, overweight, out of condition and I wobbled slightly on my unfamiliar bicycle.’

Told with humour, keen observation and supreme relish for every chance encounter, this is the unique and inspiring story of one woman’s journey of personal discovery.
