About the Author:

Oli Broom worked as a chartered surveyor until 2009 when he set off overland by bicycle from London to Brisbane. His adventure raised funds for Lord's Taverners and the British Neurological Research Trust. Since hopping off his bike Oli has lived in Rwanda where he was the Project Director of the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation.

Review:

"Oli Broom loves cricket so much he cycled from Lord's to Sydney to watch the Ashes. His book is rather marvellous" -- Stephen Fry "Much more than a world cycle tour ... brilliant" All Out Cricket "An epic adventure" Bear Grylls "I think it's pathetic he isn't cycling home again" Ian Botham "Completely potty" Aggers
