Synopsis

'It is late October, and the temperature is already -40c . . . my thoughts are filled with frozen rivers that may or may not hold my weight; empty, forgotten valleys haunted by emaciated ghosts and packs of ravenous, merciless wolves.'

In 2004 Rob Lilwall arrived in Siberia equipped only with a bike and a healthy dose of fear.

Cycling Home From Siberia recounts his epic three and a half year, 30,000 mile journey back to England via the foreboding jungles of Papua New Guinea, an Australian cyclone and Afghanistan's war-torn Hindu Kush.

A gripping story of endurance and adventure, this is also a spiritual journey giving a poignant insight into life on the road in some of the world's toughest corners.
