Description

What would happen if you were cycling to the office and just kept on pedalling?

Needing a change, Mike Carter did just that. Following the Thames to the sea he embarked on an epic 5,000 mile ride around the entire British coastline - the equivalent of London to Calcutta.

He encountered drunken priests, drag queens and gnome sanctuaries. He met fellow travellers and people building for a different type of future. He also found a spirit of unbelievable kindness and generosity that convinced him that Britain is anything but broken. This is the inspiring and very funny tale of the five months Mike spent cycling the byways of the nation.

    A great and inspiring book. Appealed to me as a keen cyclist but really think others who aren't would still find it an entertaining, humorous and thought provoking read.
  • What a good read!

    Not a daily mile on mile boring diary, witty and inspiring with a brilliant descriptive style of the landscape, peppered with accounts of personal interactions that give hope for our society today.

    There is so much in Mike Carter's One Man & His Bike that the reader, any reader (not just the avid cyclists out there) can sympathise with & enjoy. It's a well-written, entertaining and intelligent story of one man's discovery of not just the coastline of his country but also himself. Places & people are described vividly, with good humour & honesty. I really enjoyed it. Thanks! Andrew P. Sykes
