So, what are your favorite adventure cycling books? Looking for a good read....
FWIW, Jupiter's Travels is pretty good by Ted Simon. His other ones are decent too..he's a reflective cat at times. His blog in engaging too.
Investment Biker by Jim Rogers ... Great read and provides as interesting perspective to post soviet countries
The Rugged Road -Theresa Wallach
One Man Caravan - Robert Fulton
Lois On The Loose - Lois Pryce
Motorcycle Adventurer - Gregory Frazier
"Two Wheels Through Terror" and "One More Day Everywhere"- Glen Heggstad
Riding the Edge - Dave Barr
"Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" - Robert M. Pirsig
full of philosophical pondering.
The Longest Ride
Great coffee table book. Beautiful pictures.
Mondo Enduro. Austin Vince and chums.
Jupiter's Travels, Enjoyed that book greatly. Easy to read, page turner.
Read the second one, which I believe was "out takes" from the first, wasn't as good.
Been meaning to get the third.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Enjoyed the heck out of that one too. Deeper, heavier, but unlike anything else I've read. (Think "Catcher in the Rye").
By Rush drummer, Neil Peart.
A good ADV book? Obsessions Die Hard; author Ed Culberson actually crossed the Darien jungle with a motorcycle. Notice, I don't say "on" a motorcycle; the bike rested as cargo aboard many native canoes for much of the journey.
Zen and Now: On the trail of Robert Pirsig and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing
Melissa Holbrook Pierson
2 Wheels thru Terror
Going to start reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance as soon as Im done with a Tad Williams novel Im reading.
Two Wheels Through Terror
Against the Wind (Iron Butt, distance riding )
Not necessarily a mc book but the classic Travels with Charlie by John Steinbeck here is a sample:
A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike.
Lots of good books above that i'd second. I've been on an Adventure Riding Book kick for the last few years my favorites are:
- Two Wheels Through Terror and One Day at a Time by Glenn (Aka Striking Viking here on ADV)
- Jupiters Travels - Ted Simons books are some of my favorites.
- Mondo Enduro - Great adventure, not quite the way I would want to tour, and the writing style is a bit interesting, but still a great read
- Into Africa - This is Sam Manicom's first book out of a four that are really good reads. Just finished the last one.
These are the days that must happen to you. Dan Walsh.
