Ten Lessons From The Road
Smile; always carry toilet paper; don't piss into the wind.
There are a few things I picked up while cycling around the Americas for a couple of years and there is nothing long distance cycle tourists like doing more than putting together their personal manifesto in those long hours in the saddle. But where as my mental ramblings are not fit for anything other than the note book they were scribbled in, Al Humphreys Ten Lessons From The Road should be on every bookshelf and next to every loo.
Al Humphreys has cycled the globe, rowed the channel, walked across India and run marathons in the desert. He has inspired thousands with his words and published two superb books. If you want to improve your life you must read this book.
'I had so much time on the road to reflect on why I was doing my ride, what had motivated me to begin, what I was learning on the way, and what challenges I hope to take on in the future.'
