For Anna, a cycling enthusiast, the decision to ride 4,000 miles solo around the coast of the UK wasn’t that hard. Following the river from London until it became the sea, then following the sea until it reached the mouth of the Thames again was a beautifully simple idea. But after epic highs, incredible lows, unforgettable scenery and unpronounceable place names – as well as a hearty battle with some good old British weather – her simple idea turns into a compelling journey of self-discovery, and an eye-opening insight into what makes the island where she lives so special.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Anna has a beautiful way with words that lifts her adventure story out of the ordinary and into the sublime. Her lyrical descriptions had me itching to saddle up and explore beautiful Britain for myself. - Roz Savage

beautiful descriptions of the British coastline from Cornwall right up to the Highlands, a book for cyclists and armchair travellers alike. - Red Magazine online

colorful characters are met along the way, and her doggedness in carrying on, when she admits to herself (in Wales) that she doesn't want to do it anymore, is impressive and potentially inspiring - Perceptive Travel Blog

most enjoyable... the book would appeal equally to a non-cyclist - Cycling World Magazine

Warning: Reading Eat, Sleep, Cycle may reveal hidden desires to take on long distance cycling touring trips, and eat lots of fish and chips. - Total Women’s Cycling
