Fed up with questions about what he was going to do when he retired, Edward decided to get on his bicycle and ride from Le Havre to the Mediterranean. He struggled in Normandy to get directions from old men tipsy on Calvados by 9 am, passed by prairies of corn and acres of sunflowers, and hit his stride on the towpath of the Burgundy canal. He explored the mystery of what an ouvrier eats for lunch, and was barred from a swimming pool because his trunks were too decent.

Through the Rhone and down to Provence and the Camargue, Enfield is witty and informative as always.

    " An entertining book on a personal set of bicycle travels in France. I don't think, due to the scope and viewpoint of the writing, this really could be enjoyed by anyone under 40, but it would be interesting to see. "

    " Excellent, easy read. Full of practical information. Really only of interest to someone planning something similar. "

    " Would have been better if I was more familiar with the areas he travelled through. He did make it sound like just about any one could so this route and that was encouraging to a novice. "

    " Light and entertaining, slow in places but certainly has given me an appetite to travel though France on a bike at some point in my life! "
