Downloaded both - good reads and well worth the cost, which is negligible.

Some of Graham's antics leave you scratching your head (although I realize these are tales from earlier days and may be subject to some literary embellishment)

So is there an abiding theme this time? I really enjoyed his first book and on many levels. Does this one center around the completion of a certain goal or is it more random notes form his life on the bike? I'll look forward to the hardcover version.

The trouble is, it strikes so close to home. He thoroughly kept my attention throughout, even when I was squirming.

Hi all,

Sadly, for various complicated and boring reasons, this second book won't be available as a printed version.

The shenanigans described within are all pretty much recounted as they happened, even though the events described were indeed from a decade ago. Note-books, see? I have dozens of the damned things going back to 1999 or so, and most of 'em are still legible (except a couple from Sweden in 2010, which got so wet they are now just papier-mâché blocks)!

Any-how .... those that get it, or have already got it, I hope it gives you some small pleasure at my expense .... if it doesn't, well, sorry 'bout that ..

It's him who shouldn't (have) encouraged me.
