Have you ever had one of those days? One of those days when the sun is shining and the legs are strong and the lungs are heaving, lighting on air, and you’re screaming and shouting into the wind – I want you! I want you, so bad! – and you don’t mean anyone but life.
Two days after the funeral of my nan, the clouds are bursting in freakish pressure-drop rainstorms. I’m sitting in the kitchen, clinging to my teacup as if it were a lifebuoy, delaying departure on an epic 4,110 mile cycle around the coast of Britain.
Life to the Lees is more than a simple travelogue: it’s a story of doubt and discovery, solitude and solidarity, regret and recovery. From London to Lerwick to Liverpool; from Liverpool to Land’s End to London again, David learns the humbling lessons of the road. And why sharks don’t have knees.
