The Hungry Cyclist: Pedalling The Americas In Search Of The Perfect Meal

The Hungry Cyclist: Pedalling The Americas In Search Of The Perfect Meal - Tom Kevill Davies A combination of my three favourite types of books: travel, cycling and food.Tom has a idea after cycling and eating his way through France on holiday to replicate it across America. Starts in New York and travelling across and the down the West Coast of the States through Central America and into South America on the East Coast in the shape of a huge 5.He meets and eats with lots of kind and generous hosts through all the countries that he goes through. Is forced to take drugs at gunpoint! And is probably the only cyclist across America to put on weight and not loose it.Great book, a must read for all fans of travel books.
