Review Cycling Solo Ireland to Istanbul.I surprised myself by quietly enjoying this travelogue, the type of material I generally steer clear of because it becomes self absorbed Trevelyan s light touch reflected his bicycle adventure, an adventure so many young people undertake to mark their presence in life but the sense of wonderment he displays is focussed on things outside himself in the main Since the advent of the bicycle, this noble machine has offered anybody the opportunity to test him or herself out and Trevelyan s story records the trials and the wonderful little nooks and crannies of the world we find ourselves in I needed to put myself once in touch with a very important aspect of the role of the bicycle in everyday life.Rod Charles Cycling Historian currently engaged in compiling a history of cycling in Geelong since 1869rod charles rodcharles westnet.com.au
