Ten Bodies, Two Bikes and a Boil
A dark comedy based on the true story of one man's quest for immortality. Matthew Moore has received the worst news of his life - he only has one year to live, and he wants to do something he can finally be proud of. Ten Bodies, Two Bikes and a Boil follows the diary of one man as he cycles the length of the country, from Lands End to John O'Groats, dragging his father-in-law; his Bike Buddy, with him. A man who is grumpy, overweight, unfit, with knackered knees and high blood pressure. A man more likely to die than succeed. Over 3 weeks, Moore tells of his battle through the country. A light-hearted and jovial tale to begin with, Moore appears to forget about his fatal diagnosis, but quickly becomes envious of other people. What starts as a simple cycle ride soon becomes a personal crusade, one final attempt to live forever. A must read for anyone who has cycled, or is contemplating cycling, the route and includes daily maps, road and traffic conditions as well as the contour.
