DICK VAN BIKE

My second cycling book 

Book number 5 in the best-selling 'At Large' series.

More (late) middle-aged adventures.


Including a Coast to Coast 

ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth.


.... a magical 10 days. Jo on the bike, Jan in the van.

Then the bike was nicked!


(which has delayed the book!)

Quite good for something written by an ageing porker!

Thank you Lesley for your recent Amazon review:

Jo gives us a wonderfully described picture of his adopted home of the north west and its beautiful scenery. I have read all his other books when he was afloat mostly in Europe and all were similarly descriptive of the gorgeous scenery. I’m not familiar with this neck of the woods so to read of his short escapades by motorised bicycle was both amusing and absorbing especially when you realise these hills will be around for a very long time impervious to seeming man’s intent of building on every piece of flat land available . Lovely book, feel the fresh air, the peace and quiet, the wild life and dream you are there with Jo puffing his way up those inclines.

Home Series Trilogy.


Three mini books - impressions of my home town.

Written variously by me, Frank the dog and The Creator
