Description

I appreciated her honesty about her mental and physical state in the last weeks of the Round the World and I felt all the ups and downs with her! There, she has found herself deep into the heart of Colombian FARC territory interviewing formal guerrilla warfare soldiers. But despite the trials, Jenny's wonderful character shines through, making this very honest but wonderfully entertaining account of her trip. Over the course of 18,000 miles, ridden alone and with no support crew, in 2018 Jenny Graham smashed the previous Guinness World Record by nearly three weeks finishing in 124days 11hours. I felt it could have benefited from some pictures (in addition to the few on the back cover), and a map of her route.

Graham helpfully bookmarks each day's ride with total time/kilometers on the bike, start/end points and her sleeping venue. a reminder of what a positive mindset, daily intentions, the kindness of strangers and the love of friends enables even when very far away.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. You don't have to be gloriously happy in a storm, but accepting it is what makes for an easier passage', and, 'There is a freedom that comes from carrying your own home with you.

Her stories of the kindness shown by strangers and friends while on her solo endeavor are poignant .This was one of my "once a year" holiday reads and she had me hooked from the start even though I knew the story! The stunning story of Jenny Graham’s unaided solo round the world endurance bike ride which smashed the world record.
