Lone Traveller: One Woman, Two Wheels and the World

I picked up this book about a year ago because it was unique. It was about cycle touring and written by a woman. As I read I became more and more impressed with Anne Mustoe’s travel accomplishments and hope to be able to emulate these in my travels.

This book does not discuss a particular journey, rather it talks about different types of things that she encountered on multiple trips and the people she encountered along the way. She acknowledged in the beginning of the book that another book about scenery would not be appreciated and that is is, as much as we don’t want to admit, not fun reading for those who didn’t go on the journey. I appreciated the insight on situations and the story-telling aspect.

This book should inspire people to take their own trips, especially women who think “I could never do that, I don’t know how to fix a bike” or “I’m too old” or “I can’t find anyone to go with”. Anne has defied all of the misconceptions of what it takes to travel adventurously.
