Ellie is approaching the big 5 0, and realises her ambitions of a steady income, successful career and Everest ascent are a long way off! So when the opportunity to cycle from Land’s End to John o’Groats comes up, she accepts the challenge readily.
Unlike most cycle touring books, Ellie Bennet takes on the challenge in a very normal way- a way that anybody can imagine doing it. She takes a leisurely pace and makes time to taste local beers and check out landmarks. Her written style bubbles with enthusiasm so you can visualise exactly how each up and down feels.
