Bike Rides with Pilgrims and Merchants
THE INTREPID EX-HEADMISTRESS FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MERCHANTS AND PILGRIMS OF THE AMBER ROAD
Myriad wonderful characters populate the pages of Anne Mustoe's fascinating book as she pedals along three very different, but equally evocative, roads - the Amber Route from the Baltic to the Adriatic, the Santa Fe Trail from the Missouri River to New Mexico and the Pilgrims' Way of St James from Le Puy to Santiago de Compostela.
Battling against ferocious winds in Jutland, blizzards in the Rockies, traffic jams of cyclists along the Danube and menus in Czech, Hungarian and Basque, Mustoe survives with her usual fortitude and wry humour, even when she is knocked off her bike by a short-sighted nonagenarian in a Fiat Panda.
“Written by a real traveller”
“Her wry sense of humour is one of the great charms of Lone Traveller”
