«Simply astonishing. An astounding feat of physical and mental endurance, told with humour, humility and compassion. A gripping story… I couldn’t put it down

Kate Rawles, author of The Carbon Cycle

«Gripping, inspiring and remarkably down-to-earth.»

«I adored this book... I have no doubt it'll inspire so many to keep on pedalling - right through their fears and out the other side… Details of the mind-bending logistics of Jenny's self-supported journey around the planet are balanced beautifully with heart-warming tales of the kindness of strangers, descriptions of wild landscapes and (most importantly) where in the world to find the best cinnamon roll... Bravo, Jenny
