Cycling Into The Unexpected, Memoirs Publishing (£12.99)
Win a hilariously honest travel guide by entering our latest book competition. Cyclist Fran Adams has written an account of her experiences on the road with her family – and best-selling novelist Katie Fforde describes it as, "Entertaining and inspiring – full of courage and comedy".
Fran Adams and her family have been travelling abroad on two wheels for more than 30 years, and their adventures have ranged from getting shipwrecked in a mountain torrent to straying on to a Spanish motorway and getting stuck on a precipice, along with one or two painful road accidents and of course, frequently getting lost in the middle of nowhere. This is a collection of fond memories of Fran's cycling adventures with her partner and sons in England, Wales, France, Spain and Italy.
Fran, who also wrote Travels On The Breadline in 2013, describes the beautifully scenic but not-necessarily painless journeys with great humour and spirit. She details a few painful accidents and injuries as well as the map mishaps which she and her family have encountered while riding on overloaded bicycles through Europe – on a tight budget.
Fran was born in Leicestershire and studied interior design in Nottingham. She joined Stroud Cycling Club in 1981 and is now a keen member of the University of the 3rd Age.
