At will fascinate and grip the readerFrom the obvious dangers of Egypt Sudan and Kenya over the unpaved muddy mountainous roads of Ethiopia through the beautiful grasslands of Tanzania and Zambia to riding at night in Botswana in the company of elephants and giraffes Mark brings Africa to life in all its complex glory friendship and curiosity while inspiring us all to uestion the bounds of what is possible. The first chapter s an open goal setting the scene for this adventure with an account of the conclusion of his Atlantic rowing challenge If that doesn t draw you in nothing willIt s a record attempt focused on speed and covering distance and as the author often admits that means so missing out on so much local life as he flies past it on the most direct roads possible between Cairo and Cape Town If like me you ve enjoyed his other books cycling the Americas and round the world you may find a lack of variety here about the stops overnight and along the way It s a change and rather a good one in the end I appreciated how it s purer with the filming much low key than the previous adventures The stand out moments such as why you should never ride alone through nature reserves at night came across as chance encounters rather than something dreamed up and awkwardly inserted by a TV producerUltimately it s an uplifting read full of humanity Character kindness and otherwise he met along the way the highs and lows of brief moments of contact snatched with loved ones back home and proper appreciation of the support crews and the remarkable problem solving powers of social media that made it all possible Likeable and engaging writer unassuming despite what he does with a great eye for people and details
