Cycling Proficiency

By Alice Lushington

Cycling Proficiency


As revealing as a bikini made of tooth floss, Cycling Proficiency, is a 4,482 mile illustrated story of pedal-powered redemption.

It follows the wilfully ridiculous travels of a justturned 22-year-old on a freebie bike who doesn’t yet know how to fix a puncture and point-blank refuses to wear Lycra (or pants). Also, she’s crazy. Not ‘cute’ crazy, not ‘bohemian’ crazy, but whereare-the-sandwiches-at-this-picnic, medically approved, crazy. Off she goes on her wonky way, hoping things will be alright.

Fuelled by reckless enthusiasm, many tinned sprouts and just a dash of naivety, Alice hurricanes through Europe meeting a whole pick ‘n’ mix of whacky characters along the way. She returns an inch and a half taller.

This book is proof to all flavours of people that the weathers of the mind are there to be embraced.

About The Author


Alice Lushington is a 24-year-old disaster, currently living in Sussex. She wrote Cycling Proficiency to prove that craziness need not stand in the way of a full and happy life: quite the contrary. One day, she hopes to be a cyclist, an artist and a writer. Perhaps this is what she has naively attempted with this book.
