Publisher's Summary

Sean Conway was stuck in a dead end life of his own making when he heard about a round-the-world cycling race. He was immediately inspired - but it was a huge undertaking, and he'd hardly been on a bike in years. Could he really cycle all the way round the world, solo and unsupported?

Six months later, after completing a punishing training schedule and packing up everything he owned into boxes, Sean was in Greenwich Park, on the start line of the adventure of a lifetime. Soon he was way ahead of schedule, averaging 180 miles per day, and on course to break the round-the-world cycling record. But then disaster struck, and Sean was forced to confront the possibility that he may not be able to complete the race....

In the course of his 16,000-mile journey, Sean travelled the famous pan-American highway across the Atacama Desert, outran tornados, relied on fellow travellers to ferry water across the Australian outback, and inadvertently joined a cycle club in Mumbai. He learnt things about himself he didn't know and rediscovered a spirit of adventure that changed everything.

This is an audiobook about an amazing and sometimes incredibly difficult journey, but it's also about never giving up when there's an opportunity to follow your dreams.

    Story
    "Great and inspiring read"

    Amazing, Inspiring, Witty. Loved every minute. Sean is an inspiration and absolute legend. The take away message for me from this book is Chase your dreams and don't be scared to get out there and go for it.

    Story
    "Didn't want it to end"

    An inspiring story written in a down to earth style with plenty of humour. Well narrated and read at a reasonably fast pace while being easy to follow. I lose interest when narrators read really slowly so this was a nice change from some of the other travel books I've listened to.

    Story
    "I like bikes"

    No I love bikes so books about cycling heroics can always be found lying around the house.
    This really makes you feel like You could get on your bike and do something extraordinary, which obviously you can.
    It's very enthusiastically read and I really enjoyed the story.

    Story
    "Fantastic worldwide adventure in a nicely passive way."

    I found this story to be very interesting and amazingly inspirational. It blows my mind when I think that a 50km round trip to work on my bike makes me feel tired when the author is out doing over 200km daily with a heavy load.

    I would recommend this audiobook to anyone; you don't need to ride a bike to be interested in the ways of the world and all the different types of people going about their daily lives.

    I will be listening again shortly.
