(Nederlands) Meet Andrew: French teacher, writer, and long-distance cyclist. Now, meet Reggie, his bike. With two European cycling adventures already under his belt, Andrew was ready for a new challenge. Exchanging his job as a teacher in Britain for an expedition on Reggie the bike, he set off on his most daring trip yet: a journey from Tarifa in Spain to Nordkapp in Norway--from Europe's geographical south to its northernmost point. Join the duo as they take on an epic journey across nearly 8000 km of Europe, through mountains, valleys, forests, and the open road, proving that no matter where you're headed, life on two wheels is full of surprises.

The third traveloque by Andrew P Sykes. This time about his trip from the most southern spot of Europe (in Spain) to the most northern point in Norway (the Nordkapp).

It’s an easy to read book, but compared to other travelogues I’ve read it takes a bit of getting used to as some parts seem to hop from one moment and place in time to another. A bit confusing in the beginning but you’ll get used to that as the journey continues.

It really is a book that takes you along with the author on his amazing trip. Sharing his (sometimes a bit sarcastic) humour and his view on life on two wheels. Join Andrew and Reggie on a trip through Spain, France, Belgium, (tiny part) of the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and finally the last part through Norway to arrive at the Nordkapp. A traveloque sharing easy rides in the sun, getting soaked in the rain, conquering mountains and surviving Norwegian tunnels. It really is a traveling story that gives you the feeling after reading the last page that you have to say goodbye to a good friend and cycling companion.

I can recommend this book to anybody who loves (reading about) traveling and/or cycling. Who wants to go on an adventure, even though it’s in book when it’s not possible to do it in real life. 😉
