Svendsen, Linda (1954-).  Bicycle around the world.  Salt Lake City:  Gibbs Smith, Publisher, 2002.  {50680984}

Not a book about bicycle travel necessarily, this photo collection of bicycles from all parts of the world is a visual reminder of what bicycle journeyers use.

Trimbath, T. E.  Just keep pedaling: a corner to corner bike ride across America.  San Jose, CA: Writer’s Club Press, 2002.  {50711457}

Clancy, Michael (1959-).  Once around on a bicycle.  Haverford, PA: Infinity Publishing, 2003.

Written in journal style, this is his account of a fourteen thousand mile, fifteen month

Journey, May 2001 through July, 2002, around the world, beginning in Lisbon, Portugal

and ending in Philadelphia.  Clancy never was out of touch, remaining connected via the

internet and cell phone.

Dean, David M.  “Western Ho: Bicycling Across History,” Overland Journal, 21 (Summer,

2003), 68-75.

An historian, Dean bicycled from Maryland to Washington State with his son-in-law and

with those who crossed the nation in the nineteenth century.

Dew, Josie (1966-).  Slow coast home.  London: Time Warner, 2003.  {52458153}

With tongue firmly in cheek Josie Dew rode five thousand miles around the coast of

England and Wales in two stages, 2001 and 2002.  While the weather often proved less

than ideal, she explores the joys of cycling, which include meeting all types of people.  

She rode with only the vaguest outline of a route.

Enfield, Edward (1929-).  Greece on my wheels.  Chichester: Summersdale, 2003.  {57620747}

He made three trips in the late 20th and early 21st centuries to retrace the steps of the 1809 journey of English poet Lord George Gordon Byron and English politician and memorist John Cam Hobhouse.  While he devotes most of the book to local history and culture, and takes buses on several occasions, the bicycling is interesting.

misadventures with the metal cowboy.  New York: Three Rivers Press, 2003.  


The metal cowboy continues his adventures around the world.  This time he provides
