    One thought on “Red Tape and White Knuckles: One Woman's Motorcycle Journey Through Africa”

    1. More like, Red Hair, White Privilege Had a hard time choking down the author s catty remarks about other women, her blatant prejudice, and her in case you forgot, I m a woman Riding Alone Through Africa script I picked up this book because I wanted to hear about the motorcycling You know, because it s a book about a motorcycle trip Besides hearing that she dropped it a handful of times, there was nothing of interest for motorcyclists to get into No mention of a flat tire, a busted chain, a dirty [...]

    2. This is the second one of Lois Pryce s adventures I ve devoured I almost gave up on this one a couple of times but not through any fault of the author It was because of the adventure itself Africa was hostile to Lois and it s not a continent I would have any interest in conquering on two wheels It s not a challenge I would undertake but that s part of the thrill of reading her books You don t have to lift a foot off the pedal and she takes you along with terrific story telling However there was [...]

    3. The next time you are in the mood for some chic lit, pick up this instead It will give you the same light tone of a girlfriend but delivers it from the pen of an observent adventurer Lois describes the people, the clothing, the shopping, accommodations, and the culture of every country she goes through but all in the most un pretentious way She s in it, a part of it She observes her fellow travelers and how they react to their shared experiences and surroundings You may even recognize yourself I [...]

    4. This book promised so much a woman riding a motorbike through Africa What an adventure I thought Unfortunately somehow I was actually bored while reading this The author did not have to constantly remind me that she was a woman riding a motorbike solo through Africa I got that from the blurb It s why I got the book So get on with the story and tell me about Africa The writing was also terrible and predictable, which didn t help the story.

    5. A lightweight account of a pale faced, red haired Brit who naively rides her motorbike across Africa A very gutsy effort, but with little to say of much worth Lois needs to check her ego and her motivations.

    6. An amazing adventure I enjoy Lois style, but I wish she would cut back on the prejudiced remarks about foreign countries.

    7. Great writing style, great book, but sometimes a bit too prejudiced, despite the fact that she claims she s not there are some huge contradictions to be found, just one page apart from each other.

    8. Better than her first book You bet Excellent read from start to finish Lois has a way of keeping a story simple but manages to place the reader right there with her riding pillion all the way Scary parts Humorous parts Oh my goodness parts And Damn I wish I was there too parts They re all there to make one helluva story that ranks right up there with the very best motorcycle adventure stories I hope Lois and Austin continue their motorcycle journeys together for a very long time.

    9. This woman rides her motorcycle from London to Cape Town And has a sense of humor writing about it I liked this book because it is just a story about the journey, it s not a history lesson or political analysis of the places she goes through and it doesn t try to be A frank account of what travel in Africa is like, or at least what it was like for her.

    10. Enjoyable book about a mad race from top to bottom through Africa on motorbike I liked the style of writing, almost like a letter from a friend I admired the authors sense of adventure and the fact that she doesn t seem to take herself or her quest too seriously The book isn t laden with the usual long winded, romantic, complaining or patronizing descriptions that are usually associated with African travelogues.Saying that, there really isn t much in the books about the attractions of any of the [...]

    11. I thoroughly enjoyed this book I think it was especially interesting because I haven t traveled thru nearly any of the places she rode thru except Namibia and South Africa, but she didn t spend too much time writing about either That said, it doesn t inspire me to get my bike license and head up to Cairo or anything I have way too little faith in the kindness of random strangers Still, it s a great real life experience to read about Apparently there s another bunch who are walking thru Africa, m [...]

    12. It took me awhile to start this book because it was what my sister Noelle was reading last summer when she took her final motorcycle tour in Colorado Her riding companions gave it to me, and I wasn t sure I d be able to get through it But I finally made myself pick it up, and I m glad I did It s a well written account of Ms Pryce s solo trip on her motorcycle from London to Capetown Since I ve never ridden a motorcycle, this book helped me understand why Noelle loved riding so much.

    13. Like I said about the first book, it is a nice change to hear a account of a life changing adventure by a normal, down to earth person Really helps to make you feel like you are there, along with the fact the author has perfected her storytelling skills Lots of real world humour, along with worts and all lows in the trip Can t wait for the next adventure

    14. I loved this book, and Lois Pryce is a great storyteller No details felt mundane No sections felt skimmed over.She is so articulate, you feel like you re right there with her You are tense when she is tense, frustrated when she is frustrated, touched when she is touched Mostly you re just sitting back and enjoying the adventure right along with her It s a quick read and tons of fun.

    15. I liked the second half , as she travels through the Congos and Angola The parts with the group were kinda annoying, that younger girl was awful Not a bad read, but not my favorite motorcycle travel story Not a lot of interaction with locals, beyond the guide in Algeria and a few short meetings later Seemed like a slow read.

    16. Love Lois She s an inspiration and although I m only brave enough to ride around countries with roads and petrol stations a little part of me hankers to go on the big adventure Keep on biking Lois and give us another book.

    17. Pretty goodPretty good adventure story but not as witty as Lois on the Loose which I read first There was very little mention of the moto, a 250 what I assume Yamaha Us gear heads like to know the bike and the setup stuff Some pics would be nice too.

    18. Ready to go This book was excellent Great narration, nice descriptions of landscapes and people with just the right amount of details, beautifully captured spirit of each place Definitely feeling like getting on the saddle and following the same path

    19. 100% adventure Amazing trip through Africa, as an African I relate to the experiences Glad to hear that the African red tape is still in place, I miss it strangely enough.
