About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

"I've read many books about cycle touring and this is by far the best one. Well written and funny...”
"Had me genuinely laughing out loud every few pages."
“I honestly think that Chris’s book is by some way the best of its type that I have read... a true epic odyssey.”

“I spent the first afternoon beneath a big blue sky, riding safely on quiet back roads through rolling hills of green and yellow crops, where the only sounds were pigeons cooing and bees buzzing. I felt so alive, and I took a big, satisfied inhalation of fresh country air to appreciate where I was. The overpowering smell of manure made me slightly regret that, but even so it could do little to dent the joy I felt now that my big trip was under way. It was a really special sort of happiness, something bordering on euphoria. It was a feeling brought on by the anticipation of what was to come, as I set forth on this journey that was sure to change my life forever. And it was all ahead. The deserts that needed to be crossed, the mountain ranges that would have to be conquered, the oceans to be sailed, the people to be met, the problems to be overcome. It was all out there. Everything was ahead of me. At no future point would I be able to say that. From here on, the anticipation would turn to experiences that all too soon would fade to memories. The way I felt now, at the very start of my adventure, was something to treasure, something that I would always remember. It was one of the best moments of my life.”

Join Chris Pountney as he sets out on the ride of a lifetime, pedalling his bicycle away from the Eiffel Tower in the vague direction of the Sydney Opera House. It is the first stage of an ambitious attempt to become the first person ever to circumnavigate the planet using only a bicycle and boats, or at least the first person that he knows of. With a list of seven challenges to guide him (but no real map), he heads east, not knowing what he might find along the way. He might find love, he might find himself, and he might find a human skull at the side of the road in China. I'm afraid you will have to buy the book to know for sure though.

“Chris takes you on his journey and makes you believe it is possible for you to undertake an adventure of this magnitude.”

“Chris writes in one of the most witty, lighthearted, smart, & well crafted travel storytelling ways that I’ve ever had the pleasure to read.”

“I couldn't wait to pick up this book every night and catch up with Chris's next adventure. So honestly and believably written I didn't want it to end.”
