Further to yesterday's post I have a book recommendation for you. The incomparable Dervla Murphy wrote 'Full Tilt' more than fifty years ago, but it remains the defining book on bike travel. If you haven't read it, a young Dervla decides on a whim to travel by bike from Dunkirk to Delhi, a trip never before undertaken by anyone, let alone a single female traveller. Her trip takes her through Afghanistan, Pakistan and Persian (now Iran) and it's a truly uplifting tale. Buy it here.
