In 1912, Carl Stearns Clancy undertook the longest, most difficult and most perilous journey ever attempted on a motorcycle. By June 1913 he had made history, becoming the first person ever to travel round the world on a motorbike. A century on, bestselling author and biker Geoff Hill recreates Clancy's historic journey and ends up on the road trip of a lifetime. Following the same route, and with Clancy's account of the journey echoing in his head, Geoff travels through Europe and north Africa, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and Japan, all the way to America and Clancy's hometown of New York. If you enjoyed this book, you might also enjoy Geoff Hill's other motorbike adventure books: Way to Go: Delhi to Belfast on a Royal Enfield and Route 66 on a Harley Davidson; The Road to Gobblers Knob: From Chile to Alaska on a Triumph; Oz: Around Australia on a Triumph.
