TWO WHEELS AROUND NEW ZEALAND
A Bicycle Journey on Friendly Roads
"...Bischke offers insights into the pleasures of biking, fly-fishing, and just
Here is an engrossing tale. Scott writes entertainingly and perceptively of the
the population and areas he and Katie passed through. If you have ever wanted to go cycling in
New Zealand, you could do far worse than to read this book first. If you never want to go there,
don’t read it; it will probably change your mind!
"I did enjoy the book....the tone was nice, there were good illustrations, the descriptions
difficulties encountered added to the story without resorting to the whining all too common in
literature these days."
"Bischke has a fluid, chatty style..."
Today I have the pleasure of reviewing a marvelous book for you. The avid bike rider
thrilled with the detailed and fascinating descriptions This book, however, contains much more
than a simple travel log. There are, of course, the very helpful maps to help the arm-chair
adventurer find his and her way. Then we start learning so much about New Zealand: their
motivations for ecological survival, their needs to be out in natural surroundings, their
friendliness towards foreigners, and for me I loved the descriptions of the beautiful areas,
...TWO WHEELS AROUND NEW ZEALAND reads as if you were sharing travel yarns with old
friends. Scott Bischke has a very informal tone, and he really brought me into his confidences as
he shared his moods, fears, and hopes before and during this incredible year. Wouldn’t this
book make a great film!
