Trevelyan Edwards dared to do, and now he tells the story of his experience. Cycling Solo: Ireland to Istanbul explores five months of cycling solo across Europe. From Ireland to Istanbul via the UK, France, Germany, the Swiss Alps, Serbia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Turkey, with kilometres of unforgettable sites and stories in between, this is a journey worth sharing, particularly when told with such candour.
