Loved it!

Excellent and humorous book Neil, I enjoyed it so much that I read it in one afternoon ( I usually take several weeks to read a book).
Look forward to riding with you and hopefully participating/crewing in any future ventures you may be mad enough to think of!

It seemed like a good idea

Fantastic read! Aw inspiring guts and determination, being a cyclist I could relate to most it.
