Part cricket book, part cycling book, part travelogue, CYCLING TO THE ASHES is the story of a mind-blowingly challenging fourteen-month overland journey across four continents.
In 2009, Oli Broom quit his job as chartered surveyor, got on a bike and set out from Lords on the long road to Brisbane, site of the 2010 Ashes. The idea of chronicling the following year had crossed his mind, but this was never conceived of as a book-in-the-making trip. It was a chance to do something extraordinary, see the world, and spread the gospel of cricket.
