Présentation de l'éditeur

"A challenge that tested Tom to his limit but in return gave him more than he could ever have imagined."
- Bear Grylls

“Every Inch of the Way is a great page turning adventure which is as close as you can get, without actually saddling up and pedalling yourself into the unknown. It takes real magic to turn a great adventure, into a great book. For one thing, most people can't relate to the mind-set of the long distance cyclist and I found myself laughing along to Tom's thoughts and observations, wondering if they were in - jokes, shared by those who had seen the world at the speed of a bike, for example his relationship with Serbia's stray dogs! . But his anecdotes have a great balance of the cultures and places, as opposed to just inward reflections, so I am sure would be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in travel and human experience. A lovely story, written from the heart.”
- Mark Beaumont (around the world record breaking cyclist and adventurer)

This was the journey that changed my life. I had dreamed about it for so long, but I never actually thought I'd complete a trip around the globe by bike. It started off as seed in the back of my mind, that grew and grew until the idea consumed me. In March 2011 I set off on the adventure of a lifetime, from my front door, across Europe, Asia and finally the USA. I spent nights in people's houses all over the world, slept in Yurts, camped with nomads, ate delicious food ranging from Tibetan stew to alligator meat, drunk home-made Georgian wine, was given clothes, partied with Kazakhs on the Caspian Sea ferry, saw photos of USSR soldiers in front of statues of Lenin, saw Stalin's house the Grand Canyon and the Great Wall. I cycled through sweltering deserts and over huge mountains. I overcame mechanical problems with the help of an Azerbaijani mechanic and illness due to the kindness of a Tajik Pamiri doctor. On the way I cycled with local people and friends, both old and new.

I've written this book to share my story and the amazing experiences that I had. It's not a book full of arty descriptions about beautiful places, it doesn't have any clever metaphors; it's just my story. It tells the story of a normal person spending nine months experiencing the world from the saddle of a bike. I've included bits of history, observations about people's daily life, comparisons of countries and my own opinions as my story is told. I only had one rule; I had to make it round the world on a bike: every inch of the way.
I hope you enjoy my story; it will be great to have you along for the ride...

The kindle version contains colour photographs from my adventure and the hard copy contains high quality black and white photos.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoroughly enjoyed this great cycling adventure. Even a non cyclist will enjoy this exciting travelogue. 22 octobre 2013
Par Bruce Chulka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As an avid cyclist myself, I have read a lot of bike touring books. For me, Tom Bruce's EVERY INCH OF THE WAY is one of the best. This young man's attitude toward the adventure and his ability to describe it, makes for a very exciting read.

Early in the book, he draws the reader in when he writes: "All you need is a bike and the courage to leave your home. Even a weekend trip on a bike with a tent enables you to forget everything else and escape the hectic schedule of the real world." (Page 5)

He not only shares the physical challenges of the journey, but the emotional ones, as well. Before long, you feel as if you are traveling along with a new friend. He skillfully shares the spotlight of the story with the numerous cycling companions he travels with along the way. His descriptions of the places he visits and the people he meets is really a very interesting travelogue. Even a non-cyclist would enjoy reading this book.

Though the writer generally downplays the physical stamina and courage required to make such a trip alone, I think he sums up the rewards of such an adventure in this paragraph: "There is something special about riding a bike through a desert. Yes it's a massive physical and mental challenge. The heat is torture and the lack of changing horizons makes it difficult to persuade yourself to keep going, but there is something so simple and pure about surviving in this vast landscape. It is just me against the world and nature. I had challenged myself and found myself equal to the challenge. . . ." (Page 80)
For me, what he writes about the ordeal and rewards of crossing the desert alone, sums up what is required to complete this entire incredible journey.

This is a great book. Well written, humorously dealing with the challenges of strange lands and cultures. A good cataloging of a great adventure. I can't wait until his next book is out!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply Life Changing! 18 mai 2014

Reading this book has been a life changing experience.

As someone that enjoys cycling, I had previously heard about bicycle touring. But never thought that it would be something I would be able to do.

Tom proves that we are all capable of doing something like this, the only limit is our imagination.

For those who are sitting on the fence, read the book, pack your bike and live life to the fullest!

Remember, the journey of a thousand miles (or in Toms case 14,379 miles) starts with a single step.

Absolutely inspiring for anyone wanting to do more miles on their bike! Now, read the book and just get out there and RIDE! Also good insight about obtaining visas in different countries.

Good travel book - not too pretentious, with just the right balance of descriptions of exotic places, and the trials and hardships of travelling by bike.
