Bearback - the World Overland

by Dr Pat Garrod
'Inspired', 'enthralling' and 'stylish' are just some of the words used to describe the first edition of Bearback. Now in paperback, Pat Garrod's remarkable story is set to be discovered by even more travellers. Imagine jacking it all in, packing your life into a 41-litre pannier and riding into the sunset. Bearback is the story of two GPs who did just that, downing stethoscopes to take off on their motorcycle, The Bear, to see the world. Across the deserts of Africa, over the mountains of the Andes, deep into the jungles of Indochina, and beyond the Arctic Circle; 100,000 miles through six continents and 64 countries. A circumnavigation of epic proportion and entirely unsupported, it was to become one of the longest journeys ever undertaken by a couple on one motorcycle, a journey destined to change their lives forever.

Pistes de Mauritanië

Pistes de Mauritanië
Guide 4 x 4

Franstalige gids voor 4x4 en motortochten door Mauritanie - met GPS waypoints

Pays en mutation, pays en développement, la Mauritanie, peu profondément touchée par la colonisation, en bonne partie nomade il y a trois décennies à peine, si elle reste très attachée à ses traditions, n'évolue pas toujours au mieux vers le modernisme. Ce pays, au riche passé historique, composé de plusieurs races, ethnies et tribus parlant plusieurs langues et dialectes, est un pays fascinant ; à la fois dur et austère, rempli de chaleur humaine mais qui ne se laisse pas apprécier au premier abord. Terre de contrastes, dans la nature comme dans la société : on l’aime ou on l'insupporte, mais jamais elle ne laisse indifférent.

"Ce n’est pas un pays que l’on visite superficiellement pour en garder quelques images exotiques. Il faut s’y passionner, s’y quereller, parfois s’y amuser, puis laisser le vent de sable aplanir, égaliser, poncer les expériences et les sentiments, pour n’en conserver que l’essentiel. Ainsi l’on peut comprendre ce pays, par une épreuve d’initiation, en somme. Mais cela en vaut la peine." dit Jean Finore dans la présentation de la Mauritanie sur son site.

Un volume broché de 344 pages, au format 15 x 21 cm. 170 Illustrations noir et blanc et couleurs. Couverture pelliculée en couleurs.

Western Europe Motorcycle Journeys

Motorcycle Journeys through Western Europe
Europe is high on every motorcyclist's travel list because it has great roads, beautiful scenery, centuries of history, and is safe. A stumbling block can be the false perception that it costs too much and takes too much time to figure out exactly where to go. Ballentine shows that Europe by motorcycle can be affordable and doable by leading enthusiasts to the small towns and villages connected by interesting backroads through beautiful, unspoiled countryside. Each ride is based on a theme such as the running of the bulls in Spain, a D-Day tour in France, tulips and windmills in Holland, and a Band of Brothers tour from France to Austria. All are illustrated with stunning full-color photographs. Detailed maps and full route descriptions are included as well as practical information on where to rent motorcycles, driving customs, money, camping, inexpensive accommodations, and the best places to sample regional cuisine. It's a must-have book for anyone considering touring Europe by motorcycle and the perfect companion volume to John Hermann's popular Motorcycle Journeys through the Alps and Beyond, 4th Edition
