Cycling Solo: Ireland to Istanbul

Cycling Solo: Ireland to Istanbul

Author(s): Trevelyan Edwards, Hazel Edwards

Location(s): Europe

Genre(s): Adventure

Era(s): 2000

In ‘Cycling Solo’, Trevelyan has found his voice, but his bike is in bits!
29 year old cartographer Trevelyan is a candid observer as well as survivor, camping on a budget of next-to-nothing while cycling alone for five months. No wathc, just a compass and a blog.

From Ireland to Istanbul with forgettable campsites, random kindnesses , punctures, falls and steep kilometres inbetween ; this offbeat quest is worth sharing.
Quest is his real middle name.Mother-son co-authors are unusual collaborators but at three, Trevelyan inspired ‘There’s a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake’ and helped with Darwin research for ‘Ouback Ferals’. Orienteering was a family sport which meant map reading and getting lost were weekly challenges, but the family that electronically writes and explores together, stays together.
