Bike Adventures - the big book of Bike challenges
This 132 page special from the makers of Bike is built around the story, published in six instalments in 2014 but featured here in its entirety for the first time, of our ride on a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 from Peterborough, all the way back to the Suzuki factory in Japan.
We rode a route that used some of Asia's worst roads, travelling via Siberia, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. It's a great tale, that includes breakdowns, beautiful scenery and a flag-waving reception at the Suzuki factory, that deserved to be told in full. And the photography is stunning too.
This special maagzine also includes some of our other, most popular challenge, travels and adventure stories, and best photography, including Grand Prix bikes on the road, Dan Walsh on a BMW HP2 and riding a Ducati Panigale across the USA.
