This is the story of how a computer consultant threw off the weary chains of work and got on his bike when threatened with high blood pressure. His journeys took him round the canals of northern England, first on the three routes across the Pennine Hill, then further afield. He slogs his way round hundreds of miles of canals, passing through many major towns and cities including Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Liverpool, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Birmingham. The history of each canal in the sequence is included. He then takes a look at canals and navigations abroad in Ireland, France and China. This edition includes photographs of the author’s “Top Ten Sights of the North British Canals” and other highlights. Amazon review for Tyke on a Bike: “What a great book. I soon got sucked right in. I think John has described the experience in a very dry and witty manner and made the subject very engaging. A funny, interesting and provoking book – highly recommended” Jim Carey – Rating *****
