Having created his alter-ego‚ THE HUNGRY CYCLISTand with over 100‚000 pedal-powered miles before him‚ Tom Kevill-Davis pushed off from New York City on one of the most ambitious gastronomic adventures ever undertaken.
A ballsy travel memoir THE HUNGRY CYCLIST: PEDALLING THE AMERICAS IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT MEAL follows Tom's adventure into the hearts‚ minds and most importantly‚ the stomachs‚ of the people he meets. Revealing the diverse cultures of the Americas‚ these inspirational tales of one man and his bike exposed to climate‚ culture and open terrain‚ conspire to give the real flavours of this extraordinary landmass.
This is the ultimate travel adventure and a tale of life's spontaneity - of death-battles with squadrons of mosquitoes‚ malodorous public toilets‚ of galloping dysentery one day‚ to drowning your sorrows with cowboys and dining with beauty queens the next. But above all it is an ambitious story of getting to where you want to be - even if you have to endure cactus-induced punctures‚ unforgiving desert heat‚ uphill struggles through never-ending cocaine plantations‚ or artfully dodge hungry bears‚ neurotic RV-driving Americans‚ angry rabid dogs and run-ins with local law authorities in the process.
An amazing tale of what can happen when you get on your bike and go.
