Riding to Jerusalem
by Bettina Selby
People have made their way to Jerusalem in many ways. Some have ridden in triumphantly as conquerors, others have come humbly on foot as pilgrims. Today many arrive cocooned in package holiday coaches. Bettina Selby did it the hard way - on a bicycle called Evans.
Following the routes of the Crusaders and the early pilgrims across Europe, through Turkey, Syria and Jordan meant a long, very tough mountainous journey, but one of great natural beauty, and with endless opportunities to meet the peoples of those countries. It was a route that led past many of the most fabulous sites and cities of the ancient world - such as Byzantium, Troy, Pergamon, Palmyra, Petra, and finally, Jerusalem itself.
Riding to Jerusalem combines the author’s perceptions and reflections with her sense of humour and keen relish of adventure.
Not since reading Patrick Leigh Fermor have I enjoyed a travel book in which people and places, past and present are so vividly woven together
