Escape By Bike book / by Joshua Cunningham

My new book, Escape by Bike; Adventure Cycling, Bikepacking and Touring Off-Road’, published by Thames and Hudson, is now available to buy!

I'm so excited to finally get this project out into the world. It’s hard to describe just how passionately I feel about bike travel, and what it’s done for me over the years, but I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share some of my experiences in this book.

Using the narrative and photos from my year-long ride from London to Hong Kong in 2015, Escape by Bike is split up into five chapters: Forests, Deserts, Mountains, Tropics, and Cities. It’s partly a travelogue of my own journey, and partly a practical guide for negotiating these environments by bike, anywhere in the world.

With advice and insight for every stage of an adventure, from dreaming up ideas, to making them happen, and experiencing them to their full, I just hope that it does what it was created to do, and gets more people out and exploring the world on two wheels.

Special thanks to publishers Thames and Hudson, art director and designer Andrew Diprose, and illustrator Chris McNally for all their help in putting the book together.
