'You don't have to be twenty male and an ace mechanic to set out on a great journey I've cycled round the world twice now I'm not young I'm not sporty I never train and I still can't tell a sprocket from a chainring. The writing is pretty boring although occasional description and information given about the places author travels through do make up for it It s rare for a travel writer to sound judgmental about places they go or people they meet but the author manages to do it in an underhanded kind of way uite a few inconsistencies and weird conclusions in the book ie she goes on about how she hates camping but she will sleep in rooms full of cockroaches and mice Overall the author seems a bit high on herself and her ability to cycle at 60 years of age which is impressive but becomes less so as she continues to beat you over the head with it I had big hopes for the book but couldn t wait to finish reading it
