What are your favourite cycle-touring books?
I have just finished reading "Long ride for a pie" by Tim Mulliner. It's a great read about Tims overland journey through Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia. Very inspirational, and has got me pondering over an atlas for the past few nights.
"Journey to the Centre of the earth" by Nicholas and Richard Crane is another long term favourite... about a journey from Bangladesh to the Gobi back in the 80's.
