Circle to Circle - a journey through the Americas and beyond

book cover
HorizonsUnlimited reviews:

Plenty of retirees take a holiday. When Brian Rix retired after 36 years as a policeman in Victoria, rather than hitching up the caravan he put his wife, journalist Shirley Hardy-Rix, on the back of his motorcycle and headed off for a ride.

For the next 16 months Brian and Shirley rode more than 82,000 kilometres through 32 countries on five continents. They rode from the bottom of South America to the very top of North America - from the Antarctic Circle to the Arctic Circle. They rode over 5,000 metre mountain ranges, through snow and ice, through deserts and tropics, enduring altitude sickness and a near catastrophic breakdown in the heart of bear country.

Circle to Circle is an inspiring and engaging account of the travels of an adventurous couple. It will entertain you in your armchair, or it may even inspire you to get up and go.
