A LIFE APPRECIATED is a quality hardback book containing over five hundred beautiful illustrations choregraphing a solo unsupported cycling journey from the southernmost tip of Europe to the most northern point, taking in some classic cycling climbs en-route. The author travels through nine countries, providing an in-depth insight into cycle touring. This book will both inspire and enthral the reader.
The author has combined his blog written at the time of the journey with further details of his experiences and personal anecdotes. With additional information about historic places, he visited. The book also provides details about the pros and cons of wild camping.
With a sense of humour, the author refers to himself as an ’Old Git’. He carries many of life’s experiences with him, from summiting Everest to several brushes with death, such as being avalanched to being threatened with a rifle. He is, however, very much alive and continues to seek adventure.
