Thank you Lesley for your recent Amazon review of A Bike at Large:

5.0 out of 5 stars.      

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 January 2024

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.
