Editorial Reviews

Review

Enjoyable to read, whatever your age and remains page-turning to the end - a trick missed by much travelogue. The Boy Who Biked The World deserves a place in the stocking of every cyclist who hopes to pass their passion onto their children. --Tim Dawson (Sunday Times) cycling-books.com


The Boy Who Biked the World is a fun, educational account of the first stage of Tom s journey round the world, riding the length of Africa. - Sustrans
