This is a marvellous combination of a travelog and a cyclist's slightly skewed slant on Spain and the Spanish. Polly Evans' heroic cycle ride through the Spanish Pyrenees and in the Moorish south is filled with interesting snippets about the people (past and present) and places that she visits.
Although I'm not inspired to follow on my bike I feel it is a marvellous taster of Spain; she makes me feel that it is a country worth exploring. Obviously to be able to speak the language would be an added advantage in trying to understand the peoples of its various regions, especially when travelling off the beaten tourist track and when encountering the frustrations of x, y or z situation.
A well-narrated and amusing tale of determined, well-read young woman's cycling trip in Spain. Dip into it before your Spanish holiday.

Absolutely great, I loved the description of Spanish Taxi drivers, Hoteliers,Drunks all laced with a good Spanish history lesson.
Lucy Scott makes it all come to life.
