Two Pedestrians on Bicycles - Graham Barden

This quirkily entitled book is an account of a round-the-world bicycle trip – a staggering 12,753 miles through twelve countries in fifteen months – undertaken by the author and his partner Mary, two ‘ill-matched individuals’ in their sixties who want more from life than the endless empty days that retirement seems to offer.

Beginning with a sprint across Northern Europe that highlights the arduousness of the task ahead, the book covers the route across France, through the Rhone Valley in Switzerland, across the Alps and into Italy, then on to Greece and a gruelling ascent of the Pindos Mountains. They then travel to Turkey, where they discover the nature of Islam in practice, before venturing as far afield as Thailand, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand, and ending in Canada, where their relationship (both cycling and personal) is strained by some distressing family news.

With its recollections of the physical highs and lows, personal crises, friendships formed, and enlightening, sometimes painful self-discoveries, Two Pedestrians on Bicycles captures all the excitement and passion of this astounding ‘rites of passage’ odyssey
