So how exactly would you cook a bat?

And what did Jesus get up to between being born in a stable in a hail of publicity, up until he appeared again at about 33 complete with a beard and an NVQ in carpentry?

Questions like this are what happens when a middle-aged, overweight bloke has a mid-life crisis, buys a bike and decides to cycle, unsupported and with minimal training from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Whilst the actual journey itself is covered in the book in a self-deprecating humorous style of the author, as his physically inadequate body and lack of training battle against the lack of comfort provided by a 2-inch wide saddle along with gravity and nature seemingly working against him for every mile, it is more about the thoughts he has while away from home with nothing else to think about other than pushing the left pedal followed by the right, followed by the left. And the responses to his thoughts from work colleagues, friends and family.

Ian Jenkins was born and bred in Sheffield making him fluent in English and broad Yorkshire as well as not using 100 words when 10 will do. His recent retirement at the age of 55 allowed him more time to enjoy his love of sports, especially football, golf, cricket, cycling and open water swimming and to put into writing, in his unique self-deprecating humorous style, his experience of cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats.

    Great casual read with some good comedy. Reads like you're having a chat with a mate at the pub and comes across very naturally. Great read all in all.
