Description A tale of adventure and high spirits, this book is an account of three cyclists who travelled around the world and became the first cyclists to do so. Travelling 44,000 miles, at times in 140*F heat – for days without food, at times without water, at times in pirate-infested territories, at times in swamp-lands, they cycled through dense jungles and notched up many ‘firsts’ while pedalling round the globe. They were the first to cycle the world – six young boys from Bombay Weightlifting Club started this journey of adventure on 15 October 1923. Crossing the deserts of Persia, Mesopotamia, Syria and Sinai, they became the first globetrotters to cover the most arduous journey of their lives in four years and five months. This is a must-read story of adventure and endurance.
