PRAISE FOR SIMON'S PREVIOUS BOOK, Riding Out

A truly inspiring journey that celebrates the healing power of adventure. A must-read.

Levison Wood

Wonderfully relatable on so many levels. Simon’s wanderlust, mental roller coaster and reactions to a fast-changing world had me enthralled in his journey, but very much reflecting on my own over the past few years. A brilliantly crafted book which holds a mirror up to the world we live in.

Mark Beaumont

Simon’s cycle ride around his own country is a fine demonstration that adventure and transformation begins on your own doorstep.
