Martin is an ordinary man; placing extraordinary demands on himself; but it is not working for him.
Travelling the continent as an up and coming cycling reporter is a demanding life which doesn’t leave much time for relaxing or romance.
Despite his busy life, Martin can’t help but fall in love with the girl with auburn hair. However he lives in Edinburgh and she lives in Utrecht, so Anke is not the girl next door and that leads to even more travelling.
How do you juggle everything at once? The two people Martin admired most seemed to manage it in their lives; but they are not here to help him and now he needs to help himself.
Follow Martin as things get very busy and more than a little crazy as he travels Europe following cycling’s Grand Tours; where an identity crisis hits him hard; affecting his career, his new romance and his very understanding of himself.
This is a light hearted yet thought provoking novel, that will entertain you and get you thinking about the many conflicts and juxtapositions that life presents to us all.
