So lets start a debate
I wouldn't put any of those too high on my list of "inspirational" books, although I've read a few of them.
Where was Jupiters Travels? And I found Old man on a bike and inspiration (If Simon can do it I'm not too old yet, as I'm much younger than him). I'd also give a honourable mention to riding the edge and riding the ice. Not the best written travel books, but you have to be inspired by the way Dave Barr overcame his injuries (NOT disabilities - he is as able as anyone here). More generally, the travel bug first bit me with Peter Fleming's News from Tartary.
Before anyone else says it, you're right, at the moment I'm spending too much time reading and not enough riding, but I'm intending to ride down to Devon for the film fest - see you there.
