9780099493563: Lois on the Loose

Young and beautiful, Lois Pryce was a rising star at the BBC. Unbeknownst to her co-workers, Lois lived a parallel life as a biker babe with an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. So she packed in her career to ride her motorcycle on her own from the northernmost tip of Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America. Alone. Armed only with the Spanish words for 'caution' and 'cheese', Lois was rather under-prepared for multiple bear sightings, bribing her way through borders, spending a night in a Mexican brothel and crashing her bike in the wilds of Patagonia.

She most certainly got the adventure she craved, and her pulse-pounding, soul-searching adventure has already attracted fans worldwide - a weblog that she kept whilst on her travels was receiving more than two-thousand hits a day.

Her hilarious, brilliantly written travelog will appeal to anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking-it-all-in and running away to see the world.

Review:

"

Lois makes merry work of a rough road. She knows how to tell a good story, and her light-hearted account almost disguises the grit, the resilience and the brave independence that lay behind her choices. Parts of that long run from Anchorage to Ushaia are really difficult, and she knows that the one bad accident she witnessed could as well have happened to her (as I know it could have happened to me). We all need the gods on our side.

It's a great read, and I hope there will be more

" (Ted Simon, author of 'Jupiter's Travels')

"If traveling is a sort of education, then Lois Pryce is now one of the world's most learned adventurers. Her misfortunes, related with wit and good humor, become our fortune, a great tumble of rough gems and gold. Her bike may not be fast, but her account is all speed and joy. Please, Lois, take another trip!" (Melissa Holbrook Pierson, author of 'The Perfect Vehicle')

"Lois has pulled off a brilliant double whammy; a great travel read and a road trip I'm extremely jealous of" (Joolz Denby, author of 'Billie Morgan')

"Lighter than Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance ... A modern day's Jupiter Travels. She writes well, moving lightly over her story with a deft touch and a calm wit. An easy read, and a very 21st century tale" ( www.motorcycle.co.uk)

"The narrative roars along at a breakneck pace, and is full of funny asides and snappy accounts - among others - of adventures in a Mexican brothel, camping in Alaska or bribing her way across the numerous borders she crossed" ( Sunday Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

One woman, one motorbike, 20,000 miles across the Americas.
