Review

Tim and Chris dreamed adventures that became reality. They took me on their wondrous travels and made me see other people's lives through new eyes Brigitte Muir, first Australian woman to climb Everest and the seven summits, and author of The Wind in My Hair I love stories like this. It shows that even in this day and age frontiers can still be found and explored. Chris and Tim have achieved something that makes me go "wow" Jesse Martin, youngest person to sail solo around the world, and the author of Lionheart --This text refers to the Unknown Binding edition.

If you're into cycle touring, as I am, or just love a real life adventure story, this is the book for you. These two guys set out to cross Russia in the dead of winter and did it. Unbelievable hardships, funny encounters, innovative trials and errors, arguments, ups and downs. This story has it all.

A testiment to the human spirit, and a warning: Don't try to cycle across Russia in the winter. Hard enough in the summer.

This is a great read documenting the highs and lows of a friendship as it is stretched across 10,000km of rough road. I initially found this book after watching a documentary featuring one of the authors, Tim, as he journeyed across the central Asian steppe on a horse. He referred to the journey documented in this book in the introduction so I decided to check it out. I'm really glad I did! The diverse adventures they experience both on and off the bike kept me turning the pages well past when I should have gone to bed. The chapter by chapter author switching was also well done, striking a good balance between their two, often differing, viewpoints about the trip.
