Adventure Cycle Touring Handbook… the 2nd Edition

51bPs0nqexL._SS500_Exciting news for anyone planning a big expedition – the 2nd edition of Stephen Lord’s Adventure Cycle-Touring Handbook is now available for pre-order on Amazon!

We had a copy of the first edition of this book when we were planning our tour and it was an essential guide to some of the world’s most exciting places to ride your bike. The maps and practical information help you get your head around the logistics of a long-distance adventure and the stories from other tourers definitely provide some inspiration.

The second edition is due out in March. We were honoured to be asked to write the Central Asia chapter so when you get your copy, let us know what you think!

    Sweet – I’ve been waiting for this for ages! I’ve read the first edition several times and I almost emailed Stephen recently to see if it was still due this year.

    I know his intention is to provide practical advice, but I think the book functions more as an inspirational device.

    Will you be featured in one of the 1-page trip summaries?

    Hi James, we wrote the Central Asia chapter for the book – so country summaries for that region, practical info about food, costs, visas etc. I agree, the book as a whole is very inspiring. I don’t dare read it or I might quit my new job and go off touring again. Just kidding 🙂
