In 2001, Russell McGilton flew to Bombay, pointed his bike towards China and started pedalling.
He was diagnosed with malaria just two weeks into the trip. That was followed by a host of other ‘adventures':
I would be chased by packs of rabid dogs in the dark of night over a mountain pass in Rajasthan, be incapacitated again from reoccurring malarial fevers, every day have inches shaved off my life from overloaded trucks with holy images of an afterlife, be charged by rhinos in a Nepali national park, have a stack with a yak, dodge atomic test sites, split with the girlfriend and have the untimely luck of getting caught in Pakistan during September 11th.
Just your routine bicycle tour then…
We chuckled our way through Bombay To Beijing By Bicycle and would definitely recommend it to other armchair bike tourists.
