RTW book written

Apologies for the radio silence, I've been busy. It was a PBP year and I also did my first Ironman triathlon - well, I needed a new challenge!

Anyway, the good news is my book is written! Not so good...I've not yet found a publisher. But these days that's not such an issue, I'll self-publish on Amazon/Kindle.

It's currently being proof-read by trusty brother Antony and fellow audaxer Malcolm Dancy who wrote his own book about LEL, and I'm getting some illustrations and a cover done by Dominic Trevett who did my logo.

An extract, Warsaw to Voronezh, was published in the spring issue of Arrivée magazine.

Glorious Finish

Some photos from the final day of my ride here. Thanks to all family friends and colleagues who turned up at Bikefix to welcome me home, an occasion I will long remember.

Still rattling the tin for RoadPeace

What's the next challenge? If I can get my notes organised...maybe a book. Watch this space!
