Cycling to the Ashes : A Cricketing Odyssey from London to Brisbane, Paperback Book

Cycling to the Ashes : A Cricketing Odyssey from London to Brisbane Paperback

Description

One man, one bike, two Mongoose cricket bats, one tropical disease, 16,000 miles and a lot of dead kangaroos.

Oli Broom loves cricket. So much so that in 2009 he left his 9 to 5 in London and set off to cycle to Brisbane for the Ashes.

Along the way he played cricket in the shadow of the Blue Mosque, slept in a goat pen in Sudan, dodged a 5-metre crocodile in the outback, battled mountains in sub-zero temperatures in Bulgaria and successfully negotiated the treacherous highways of India.

Starring the colourful characters he met on his travels, this is a funny and poignant tale for anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking in the day job to embark on an incredible adventure.
