Across Europe by Bike

The St Gotthard Pass

Andrew Sykes tells of his six week summer journey from his home in Reading in Berkshire to Puglia, on the southern tip of Italy, along the Eurovelo 5 long-distance cycle route. He reads from Good Vibrations: Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie, the book he’s written about the trip. Andrew will be appearing at Blue Door Bicycles this Wednesday 15 February at 8pm for a book reading and discussion.

Jen and Jack talk about the terror of the Waterloo bridge roundabout and the Mayor’s plans to remake it (again). Finally, a tribute to Henry Warwick, a veteran London bicycle messenger who was killed in a crash with a coach while working earlier this month.

  1. Thanks for the opportunity to talk about Good Vibrations: Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie. The plan is to cycle Eurovelo 8 in 2013 so I’ll see you sometime in 2014 for another chat?
