buy now

This book tells the story of an 858-mile bicycle trip over eight days in August 2015 – from Amsterdam on the North Sea southward to Venice on the Mediterranean Sea.

It is the tale of a grueling but exhilarating journey by bike, alone and unsupported, through four beautiful countries: from the Netherlands, through Germany, into Austria and over the Alps to Italy. But the book is not just an illustrated narrative of a long-distance bike tour.

The author also discusses preparing for the trip, choosing the route, his bike and its components, and the gear he brought along. He reviews the cycling clothing he wore and recounts the small details that helped make the trip successful. He includes a packing list of every item taken along, and tips for averaging more than 100 miles a day for eight days in comfort and good spirits. The author also responds to questions he is frequently asked about the trip.

The author’s account of preparing for and taking this trip will help a seasoned cyclist plan a similar long-distance trip, a shorter weekend trip, or even an around-the-world tour.

Come along and hear what it takes, how it felt, and what it looked like to ride hundreds of miles, on a few pieces of highly-engineered carbon fiber, through the varied terrain and landscapes of Western Europe.
