Anna Hughes and the Thousand-Mile Book Launch!


Our cycling superstar author Anna Hughes took us on a 4,000-mile tour of Britain’s coastline in her book Eat, Sleep, Cycle, published by Summersdale in March of this year. But Anna hasn’t hung up her cycling kit – far from it. Starting today, she’s beginning an epic thousand-mile book launch, travelling – of course – by bicycle, from Land’s End to John o’ Groats.

Along the way, Anna will be visiting bike shops, cycling cafes and bookshops and giving talks, readings and signings. Here’s Anna’s itinerary – we hope you can make it to one of her staging posts! For all the details, visit Anna’s website.
