2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Great sense of humorBy John S.I read this one after listening to the audio of the author's other bicycling adventure through Greece. Sorry there aren't more!Set this one aside for a halfday plane/train trip.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. along the lines of Jerome K Jerome in his observations The book doubles as a travel guide albeit over 10 years old now - the audBy gavI read this as I am a keen cyclist but cannot be doing with the tortuous travelogues by the kind of cyclist who travels remote areas complaining about how much it hurts.I am in my mid forties so a witness to the Authors sons ( Harry Enfield) work but I must say the senior is very witty, along the lines of Jerome K Jerome in his observationsThe book doubles as a travel guide albeit over 10 years old now - the audio book is worth the additional cost as the actor reading is wonderful.5 of 5 people found the following review helpful. RecommendedBy MartinThis book by Edward Enfield is a very nice story about an elderly person (but very young as afar as his behaviour and propably feelings are concerned) who travelled the whole France. He didn't use train, coach or even a thumbing. He cycled the whole way. It's called "Downhill all the way" as it's about a way from Havre to the south, so from Uppland to the coast. It can be also called "Downhill..." as it's the same pleasure to read it as to cycle downhill, without any exhoustion and with a lot of satisfuction. It's also good for people trying to do the same way themself, as it's a kind of guide book. And for all people at "old" age but feeling young, as it shows them how they can made their "automn of life" more interesting then any other parts of it. If you want to try to read Enfield you can find his esseys on ... A bicycling adventure from Le Havre to the Mediterranean "A charming and witty work!" Destination France
