In 1912, wearing a tweed three-piece suit and a flat cap, Carl Stearns Clancy undertook the longest, most difficult and most perilous journey ever attempted on a motorcycle. By June 1913 he had made history, becoming the first person ever to circumnavigate the globe on a motorbike. One hundred years on, bestselling author and motorcycle adventurer Geoff Hill recreates Clancy's historic journey. Following the route taken by his illustrious predecessor, and with Clancy's own account of his journey echoing in his head, Geoff rides down through Europe and north Africa, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and Japan, all the way to America and Clancy's hometown of San Francisco. Join Geoff on an epic motorbike adventure, as he relives Clancy's grand tour, discovering first-hand how the world has changed since Clancy's first motorbike journey over a century ago, and as he pays tribute to a motorcycling legend.
