    1. Reza Pakravan Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Kapp To Cape: Never Look Back: Race to the End of the Earth book, this is one of the most wanted Reza Pakravan author readers around the world.

    2. Reza Pakravan was settled in his comfortable life in London working as a financial analyst, but he wasn’t happy. He had started to work with the Azafady charity to raise money for those in most need in Madagascar. After cycling across the Sahara, and setting a world record in the process, he wanted something to get his teeth into. A plan was conceived and in August 2013, he embarked with his cycling buddy Steven Pawley on an 18,000 kilometre journey from Nordkapp to Cape Town with two aims in [...]

    3. This was a wild ride,both literally and figuratively. The author who loves adventure and has a passion for raising money for schools in Madagascar, decided he wanted to try biking from the northernmost part of Norway, Nordkapp, to Cape Town in South Africa, slightly over 11,000 miles. He met a person who actually worked with him, who wanted to do the challenge as well, so Reza and Steve start their ride in Norway through, Finland, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Bots [...]

    4. This was an enjoyable and pleasant read with a good balance of introspection, elation and misery experienced on a bike ride from somewhere in the far North of Europe down to Cape Town. You can’t bike much further south from Cape Town, I suppose, although I suspect the author would have if he could have, in lieu of anything better to do with his life. The journey took two years to plan and nearly a third of a year to complete, becoming a bit of a race in the process, but this means that the boo [...]

    5. Loved this book! Fascinating account of an 11,000-mile bike trek from the Arctic Circle to Cape Town, South Africa - well written and well edited.I've long been a fan of books based around personal challenge adventures whether it's completing the Continental Divide trail, isolated living in the Alaskan wilderness, trekking across Australia with a string of camels or a family sailing the South Atlantic. Pakravan's Kapp To Capp is a standout in this genre; one that I will remember and recommend fo [...]

    6. Wow, what a story, what an adventure. Much of the route seemed either unpleasant or dangerous and sometimes both at the same time. The challenges were immense and mostly overcome by the author and his companion Steve. Was the aim of the expedition to allow Pakravan to find a new life in the cycle of expedition-book/film-next expedition or was it to raise funds for good causes; maybe it was both. I would be interested to see a balance sheet for this trip, did the expenditure justified by the fund [...]

    7. This memoir by Reza Pakravan tells the story of when he and his buddy Steven Pawley decided to make an 11,000 mile trek from Nordkapp, Norway (on the shores of the Arctic Ocean) to Cape Town, South Africa. More of a personal reflection than a cycling or sports book, this great read tells of the many obstacles the two men faced - fatigue, politics, mechanical issues with the bikes, malaria and roadblocks are just a few of them. There are some poignant moments - the best one comes when Reza shares [...]

    8. An amazing, thought provoking, moving read that has me wanting to jump on my bike and just cycle away. A must read for any cycling fan and fans of travel adventures. Have just immediately ordered the DVD of the tv show to relive it all again.

    9. I was always going to love this any book combing adventure travel and cycling is always going to be a winner for me only thing now is that it has left me with pangs of wanting such an adventure myself.

    10. Reza’s “Kapp to Cape” would have been a most excellent adventurous read had he went with his first gut extinct: “I was fairly certain I knew why Steve had invited me for this drink, of what he was about to ask me. It all left me with a faint sense of unease, which I tried to quell with a glug of beer. It didn’t work”. Combine this uncertainty and the blow-by-blow words exchanged with Steven, riding to raise money for a charity, riding for some Guinness world record, and riding to att [...]

    11. Reza is disillusioned with life in the City. He wants to get back in the saddle and raise funds for a charity close to his heart ( SEED Madagascar ) so Kapp to Cape is born with the help of his friends and 'co pilot' Steve.They travel from the tip of Norway to the end of South Africa, by bicycle! Travelling through some of the roughest terrain in the world - not to mention the most dangerous. Events such as conflict and kidnapping to food poisoning and malaria, wild animals and thieves. This tru [...]
