Product Description:
A woman of an uncertain age, bruised by the U.S. election, escapes to the West Midlands of England, and rides the Worcester & Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon canals. Eleven days, 200 miles, three cities, little ice, alone. Sheer hell … with scones. This book is neither a practical travel guide to the Midlands nor a deeply personal and inspirational story. What it does have includes: embarrassing senior moments; worries about health care; grassroots volunteers who saved the canals; where to find a balti in Birmingham; Shakespeare’s curse; gratuitous displays of vocabulary; far too many restrooms; black market organ brokering; murder; bleeding thumbs; how canal locks work; the Reformation; jumping fish; and vicious swan attacks. The book is illustrated with maps of the canals, cities and the region. All color photographs. Includes information about the Tardebigge flight of 30 locks, Worcester Cathedral, Shakespeare's Birthplace and the proper way to clear a propeller from weeds. You will never need to read another book about an American woman riding a bike alone on an English canal—until my next book on the subject. From the author of Narrowboating for Beginners: What Americans need to know when considering a narrowboat vacation in the UK.

Product Description:
Biking Britain end to end - one day at a time and at your own page - is within the reach of most reasonably fit cyclists, and an unforgetable experience! This book tells you how to do it, as Britain is the perfect place to explore by bike - a compact island with a vast network of quiet roads linking charming villages and historic sites. The book is divided into two innovative sections:

Part I

* details for cyclists coming from overseas

* when to tour

* specifics of cycle touring in Britain

* background information for beginner bicycle tourers

Part II: The Journey

* split into 21 stages laid out in an innovative 4-page format

* photos, maps, an elevation profile and route descriptions

* details on intermediate stops, so stages can be tailored to ability levels

* listings for campgrounds, hostels, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, information centers and bike shops

* photos from each 25 miles along the route for an idea of the countryside and road conditions

* history of places along the tour

This is a great ride for cyclists seeking their first extended ride, or for experienced tourers looking for interesting alternatives. It's also a great read for armchair cyclists.

Product Description:

One man's fatigue with 9-to-5 led to a five-month journey around the edge of Britain by bike—here are his adventures

What would happen if you were cycling to the office and just kept on pedaling? Needing a change, Mike Carter did just that. Following the Thames to the sea he embarked on an epic 5,000 mile ride around the entire British coastline—the equivalent of London to Calcutta. He encountered drunken priests, drag queens, and gnome sanctuaries. He met fellow travelers and people building for a different type of future. He also found a spirit of unbelievable kindness and generosity that convinced him that Britain is anything but broken. This is the inspiring and very funny tale of the five months Mike spent cycling the byways of his nation and rediscovering a level of happiness he thought he'd lost forever.
