One of my main inspirations for doing this trip was following the adventures of Alastair Humphreys who spent 5 years cycling round the world (and them some). I read about him in a newspaper when he was about a year into the trip and was entranced by his tale, following along as he posted occasional diaries. His ethos was that if you could ride a bike down the road, you could go round the world- it just took more time. You didn't need any special skills or talents, to start off with a particular level of fitness or have a superb bike; just set off!

So this short post is to say thanks to Al for the inspiration, and plug the books he subsequently wrote of his long adventure. They're very readable.

Book 1: Moods of Future Joys: Around the World by Bike - Part 1
Book 2: Thunder and Sunshine
