Cycling insanity through snow ice angry villagers drunken drivers award worthy pot holes language failures dark ruins mad dogs hunger and extreme physical exhaustion Insane it might have been but it was the best non trip I ve taken The historical knowledge and visions were better than any history class I ve attended The reality of the aftermath of the communist cold war is not something I had ever even thought of before The best part I didn t get a sore bum riding the trailThis was my first Tim More adventure and it will not be my last This was a dark trip through history there is little light to be found in that history Mr Moore brought some lightness with his brisk humor and honesty His observations are not something I think I would notice on a trip I enjoyed his views very much I would suggest reading this while googling the places to see the landscape he traveled it is amazing

Tim Moore sets off on his daftest adventure yet cycling along the former Iron Curtain on an old East German shopping bike He survives the 8 700km fueled by curiosity boneheadedness and dubious energy drinks and describes the ordeal in self depreciating prose reminiscent of the early Bill Bryson At one point he describes his decision to stop for the day as apart from vowing not to have children and buying a cordless hedge trimmer the only sensible decision he has taken since reaching middle age For no good reason whatsoever he starts in Kirkenes in northern Norway in March which means that he had to cycle through Finland in the snowiest part of winter and arrives at the Black Sea at the height of summer with the temperature going from 15 to 45 The woefully inadeuate bike miraculously survives the journey but doubts still linger concerning the sanity of the author
