About the Author:

After studying product design at Central St Martins College, Tom went on to work at Christie's, before becoming Creative Designer at advertising agency, Panlogic.The son of two dedicated foodies, and an enthusiastic cook himself, Tom pursued his passion for gastronomy by regularly writing the food editorial for The Season magazine.Since embarking on his trip Tom has made regular appearances on BBC Radio 4's Excess Baggage and LA-based KCRW's The Good Food Show, as well as being a featured writer for Rough Guide. Tom currently lives in South London with four bicycles.

Review:

"An all-you-can-eat-ride-by buffet through lands the bike forgot." Tim Moore"I'm not sure whether I'm more impressed by Tom going solo, slow and through some of the world's most notorious bandit country, or for getting hungry enough to eat a guinea pig." John McCarthy"A glorious account of the madness that lies at the heart of long distance cycling and an intriguing insight into the extra miles we, who are obsessed with pedal power,will go to secure the meal of our dreams." Jon Snow
