Is there a thriftier way to see the world, keep fit and avoid carbon emissions other than cycling? Bet anyone a million pounds they can think of one and get rich quick, for they won't get very far unless they get on a bike.
Unless, of course, they've read Simple Words from the Saddle and found out for themselves what cyclists are smiling about. Scot Whitlock has cycled through China and the Ukraine, round the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands, around France, Spain and even parts of England and Wales. Now his travels appear in one book where others can share the fun.
Almost as good as the real thing, Whitlock's lively and observant accounts will allow veteran cyclists to weigh up a selection of new trails to blaze, even as he tips off beginners about cycle routes safe for kids.
Can't do it on a bike? Don't blame him.
