What a great letter to receive…
letter from a girl

I’ve been delighted with the feedback for The Boy Who Biked The World.

Have a sneak preview inside the book here.

It’s proving really popular as a class reader (and was even turned into a play!).

And to encourage more classes to read the book I am selling bulk copies at half price.

Please tell a teacher!

    That’s wonderful Alastair – I understand how this stands head and shoulders over most comments you have. Good luck this year in your journeys – I only follow a few adventure people but you stand out the most through being – exciting – re-inventing and honest…

    Lovely letter! Nice to see a girl being inspired too :o) You want to send a review copy to me so I can include it in Women’s Cycling Issue 2? Issue 1 on sale 22nd March!

  3. Alastair, thats amazing! So great to see and hear from the people you inspire first hand! The biggest reward no? Sounds like Sofia is planning her own little micro adventure!

  4. That’s gorgeous Al. I must confess to printing out emails that make me happy and sticking them in my diary 🙂 Make sure you frame this one.

  5. Beautiful! Further proof that we can all influence the world around us.

    Thanks to your courage to roll out of the safety and security of life in the UK, you’ve inspired thousands to set off on cycle tours big and small.

  6. That’s a lovely letter from Sofia. I have shared your request to all my teaching friends on facebook having read ‘The Boy who Biked the World’ myself! When is the sequel coming out?
