THE LONG RIDE HOME

This is my first book about my original ride back from Sydney to London on a 105cc Australian Post bike named Dorothy. The book's had a few names over the years; Going Postal was the original title in Australia, it was then called Riding Dorothy briefly in the UK, before settling on the slightly dry title of the Long Ride Home, which is effectively what the journey was; taking 9 months, covering 23,000 miles and leaving after just 3 days of planning. It was a response to circumstances and not as crazy as it sounds. The book is about that trip and the reasons and motivations behind it.

RUNNING TOWARDS THE LIGHT

This is the sequal to the Long Ride Home and tells the story of my subsequent trip across America on the same Australian Post bike. The journey was different to the first trip; different circumstances, different length and mileage, different level of interaction; this slow old bike forcing me to engage with the back streets of America, meeting incredible people and learning something about the country, and myself, along the way. It wasn't an easier trip than Sydney to London; in some ways harder. The book is another honest account.

TWIN PACK - Long Ride Home + Running Towards the Light

This is simply a two book bundle of the Long Ride Home and Running Towards the Light. For me the books are part of the same story, that just happen to get told over 3 years apart. If you've watched the short video on the homepage then the two books encapsulate the entire duration of that video; from setting off from Sydney to finishing up in Alaska, at the town of Skagway, before coming home and hanging up my boots for a while. People ask about a third postie book; we'll see...
