Description

'It is late October, and the temperature is already -40C...My thoughts are filled with frozen rivers that may or may not hold my weight; empty, forgotten valleys haunted by emaciated ghosts and packs of ravenous, merciless wolves.'In 2004 Rob Lilwall arrived in Siberia equipped only with a bike and a healthy dose of fear. CYCLING HOME FROM SIBERIA recounts his epic three and a half year, 30,000 mile journey back to England via the foreboding jungles of Papua New Guinea, an Australian cyclone and Afghanistan's war-torn Hindu Kush.A gripping story of endurance and adventure, this is also a spiritual journey giving a poignant insight into life on the road in some of the world's toughest corners.www.roblilwall.com

Review quote

I'm not sure Rob Lilwall knows it, but he has penned a two-wheeled classic. I wanted to rise up singing and strap on my bicycle clips. -- Kevin Rushby * The Guardian * Lilwall has a wonderful ability to inspire trust in his readers. * The Guardian * Lilwall's story is a remarkable one ... enhanced by the fact that he has a writer's skill for conveying a sense of place. * The Sunday Telegraph * A rite of passage adventure, full of thrills, excitement and endurance tests. * Irish Times * Not only describes different countries and their peoples, but also delves into the human heart. -- Amy Boucher Pye * Woman Alive * A real adventure story * The Baptist Times * Rob Lilwall is such a transparently decent, honest and likeable bloke that it is difficult not to become involved in the highs and lows of his journey. 7/10 -- Martin Spice * Times Educational Supplement *
