High road rider: An Incredible Two-wheeled Journey Through the Alps

When veteran motorcycle riders Mike and Jo Hannan decided to explore the European Alps on a motorcycle, they never imagined the incredible adventures that would unfold. The Alps pass through eight very different countries - Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, France, Italy and Monaco - and has played a major part in all their turbulent histories. Home to diverse peoples, languages and landscapes, not to mention majestic passes, verdant valleys and breathtaking hairpin turns, the Alps quickly swept Mike and Jo away with their folk stories, natural beauty and endless contradictions. Illustrated with personal snapshots, High Road Rider is a gripping, funny and true account of one couple's epic ride, and the wonders they encountered along the way.
