    This is a hilarious account of an ordinary (if somewhat eccentric) woman's extraordinary round-the-world trip by bicycle. The colloquial and engaging style makes easy and enjoyable reading. There is a perfect combination of historical references, fantastic descriptions which almost allow the reader to visit the scene and personal experiences related with such honesty that the reader feels that s/he knows the author. As I read the introduction, I laughed aloud. This behaviour continued sporadically throughout the book, with the result that my companions formed a queue to borrow it! The author showed great respect for all the cultures she encountered, and the account was related with incredible humility; Lucy (yes, I feel that we're on first name terms!) clearly LOVES cycling. The tale she tells is predominantly one of great fun, rather than a 'challenge', which makes Bicycle Odyssey refreshing to read. This is by far the best book I have read about cycle touring.
