Book 39 for 2012

Mud, Sweat and Gears by Ellie Bennett. 291 pages.
Account of a Lands End to John O'Groats bike ride by Ellie and her friend Mick. Rob was a tad scornful of their slow pace and technical ineptitude, but they went out and did it, which is what counts, I think. This is an interesting and sometimes amusing (but sometimes not as amusing as it thinks it is) account of the trip, with some interesting historical background on the places visited and quite a lot of Beer.
