John Higginson has been a long-distance fell walker for many years. Having been a keen cyclist in his youth, he took up long-distance cycling in Europe a few years after he retired from the post of headmaster of a Cheshire primary school. He is now a writer and lecturer.
He and his wife Andrea, who have also cycled both south-to-north and east-to-west across France and the length of the medieval pilgrimage route from Le Puy in France to Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain, spent more than a year researching the historical traditions and the geography of the Danube Cycle Way before embarking on the journey that is described in this book.
John Higginson has also written The Way of St James – Le Puy to Santiago, a Cyclists' Guide.
This handy pocket-sized guidebook contains detailed route descriptions for the 1570km cycle route from Le Puy in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain following the original Pilgrim route. The route is described as 27 day stages and with the average distance covered in a day at 50km, cyclists of all abilities can complete this route.
