Praise

A fascinating tale of determination and discovery, and a gripping, emotional ride through the peaks and valleys of the mountains and the human spirit.”  - Dean Karnazes, ultra endurance athlete and New York Times bestselling author of Ultramarathon Man

120 years ago, the idea that it was even possible to bicycle some 20,000 miles around the world captivated the public’s imagination. What would they think about Mark Beaumont and his modern mount, completing the journey not in two or three years time but in less than two hundred days? The Man Who Cycled the World delivers a fast-paced, lively account of this extraordinary achievement, infused with insights and humor.” – David Herlihy author of The Lost Cyclist and Bicycle: The History

“Cycling enthusiasts and readers of such varied books as Joe Kurmaskie’s Metal Cowboy (1999), Tim Moore’s French Revolution (2002) and Robert Penn’s It’s All about the Bike (2011) will definitely want to check this one out.”–Booklist

“Racing aficionados and armchair racers seeking freewheeling glimpses of the world via bicycle will cherish the trip.”–Kirkus Reviews
