The front cover of the book told me that it was about cycling, which I love, but there was so much more to it than just a cyclist riding around 2 countries in Europe. Besides reading about some of the history of the 3 grand cycling tours, there were many references to Spain and Portugal’s turbulent past. What I enjoyed most was not just the author’s descriptions of his long-distance ride, but the other characters in the book: his wife Roz, his daughter Emma, and some of the people they met on their journey. Many of the places they visited whet my appetite for further travel, especially the Pyrenees, Lisbon and Andalusia in the south of Spain. I recommend the book, to not just cyclists, but people who love to travel and enjoy some humour along the way.

I got interested in this book because I love cycling and travelling the world. I’m also addicted to cycling tours in Europe, especially the Tour de France. Until I read the book, I didn’t know much about Spain’s Vuelta a Espana nor some of the its mountain climbs, like the Alto del Angliru. It was also interesting to learn about Spain and Portugal’s history, particularly the Spanish Civil War. As for Portugal, I’m looking to pay it a visit very soon.
