Carter followed the Thames to the sea, embarking on an epic 5000 mile bicycle ride around the entire British coastline, the equivalent of London to Calcutta. Here he reveals the adventures he had and the people he met along the way, from drunken priests to drag queens. From the author of "Uneasy Rider", which sold more than 28,000 copies.
Mike Carter is the author of "Uneasy Rider" and a contributor to the "Guardian" and the "Observer."
"[Carter is] a likeable and self-deprecating guide, the gentle comedy of his endeavours conceal[s] a vivid portrait of a Britain rarely seen by many city dwellers" Financial Times "A breath of fresh air" Nicholas Crane "A lively road trip round the periphery of Britain that goes to its heart. Wonderful" -- William Fotheringham
