What's it all about?

In Summer 2009, Andy Allsopp participated in LEL: A 1400km international ultra marathon cycling event, played out between the capital cities of England and Scotland.

In early 2010, a record of his attempt was published as a paperback, now made available through Amazon UK (and US), or worldwide through LULU.

Review from VantageCreative

Nice review from 'vantagecreative' today, saying

If you haven't the time or energy to ride a bike from London to Edinburgh and back, 'Barring Mechanicals' can do it for you.

Andy's account is manic stuff written in a style that captures the 'race' up to Edinburgh and back and the people he meets on the way. If you like 'against the odds' surreal humour this is a great read. I found myself drawn in and cheering him on. This is a race against the clock and the book paces it very well.

Sleep deprivation... Strange food... Scottish water torture... it's all there.

Also great graphics that lets you follow his progress and set backs.

Thanks friend!
