Publisher's Summary

When Polly Evans set off on a journey round Spain by bicycle, she found more adventures than she had bargained for: She survived a nail biting encounter with a sprightly pig, escaped over-zealous suitors, had her morality questioned by locals and indulged in her love of regional cooking. While she pedalled, Polly pondered some of the more lurid details of Spanish history - king who collected pickled heads and the unfortunate duchess who lost her feet. And wherever she cycled,she ate and ate-and yet still shrank out of her trousers.

a truly amazing feat on two wheels

When I started the book I really did not know what to expect. I found out so much more than the problems of travelling on two wheels, local quirks and customs, history and humour. The author gives an insightful view of the hidden Spain, and the variation in the culture across her journey. It was difficult to detach yourself from the adventure. A truly memorable experience to be party to.
