Aye Write, Glasgow's Book Festival invites you to share the extraordinary journeys of Sarah Outen & Lois Pryce as their adventures take them to beautiful and unexpected places.
On 1 April 2011, Sarah Outen set off in her kayak for France. Her aim was simple: to circle the globe entirely under her own steam - cycling, kayaking and rowing. Dare to Do is more than an adventure story. It is a story of the kindness of strangers and the spirit of travel; a story of the raw power of nature, of finding love in unexpected places, and of discovering your inner strength. Intrigued by a note left on her motorcycle inviting her to Iran, Lois Pryce decided to ignore the official warnings and set off alone on a 3,000 mile ride from Tabriz to Shiraz. Revolutionary Ride is the story of a people and a country. with a wild sense of humour and appreciation of beauty despite a comparative lack of freedom.
