The Boy Who Biked The World

“Aimed primarily at children, this is an exciting adventure story about a boy cycling around the world (this book focuses on Africa), drawing heavily on the author’s experiences of his own round-the-world cycling odyssey. It’s entertaining but it also educates with its abundance of information, and is sure to inspire. A perfect choice for any parent of a would-be cycle adventurer.” – Women’s Cycling

“An enjoyable adventure story packed full of facts. Would make great discussion points for primary school kids if used as a class reader, and it is also cross-curricular, covering subjects such as geography, religion, languages and a number of other subjects.” – Book Zone For Boys
