Promotional Information

From the author of French Revolutions and Gironimo comes a hideously over-ambitious challenge on doomed machinery. Tim Moore cycles the length of the old Iron Curtain

About the Author

Tim Moore - Britain's indefatigable travelling everyman - has walked 500 miles across Spain with only a donkey for company (Spanish Steps); roamed the continent from Liverpool to Lisbon to track down the Eurovision contestants who suffered the entertainment world's prime humiliation (Nul Points); sort-of conquered the Tour de France on a diet of ProPlus and rosU wine (French Revolutions); and ridden the 3,200km route of the notorious 1914 Giro d'Italia, handicapped by a century-old, wooden-wheeled bicycle and an unbelievably daft period outfit (Gironimo!). Now, in defiance of the ageing process and every pleading dictate of basic reason, he undertakes an odyssey more ambitious - and more silly - than all of those combined. Somehow, he still lives in London.
