A hand-picked selection of the best cycle touring books for an armchair adventure
The best cycle touring books according to me. I’ve read these cycle touring books a couple of times over and they’re full of useful insight, practical guidance and most importantly, inspiration.
I came to cycling literature in a back-to-front fashion. I’d already made a handful of adventurous journeys by bike before I’d read any of the books I’m about to recommend.
I was introduced to cycle touring by my best friend, Adrian. He invited me along on a coast-to-coast ride – Barrow in Furness to Whitby – in 2008 and I never looked back. I guess that says something about how I learn new things and step into new realities.
