Books by Tom Allen
Travel Memoir: Janapar – Love, on a Bike
The best laid plans always go astray — and Tom’s are no exception.
Like the documentary film of the same name, Janapar: Love, on a Bike goes much further than recounting the nuts and bolts of a long bicycle journey, exploring what it means to be a modern-day journeymaker, the challenges and tough sacrifices one must make in order to follow a dream, and the series of realisations that must befall the young and naive traveller about life and love.
Available as a paperback and Kindle edition.
Digital Guide: Essential Gear for Adventure Cycle Touring
257 pages of hard-earned advice on getting kitted out for your adventure.
Essential Gear, Tom’s second book, is a comprehensive and timeless resource on gear for cycle touring — a guide that takes a step back from kit lists and equipment reviews and looked instead at tackling the underlying concerns of newcomers to this limitless and exciting form of travel.
Available as a digital download in PDF, Kindle and EPUB formats from GearForCycleTouring.com.
