The Slow Cyclist Meets William Blacker

On a recent visit to the Saxon villages of Transylvania, I spent an afternoon playing table tennis and drinking tea with author William Blacker, who for the past 26 years has lived an extraordinary life deep in rural Romania.  His best-selling book, Along the Enchanted Way, is a great read and, if you're thinking of joining us on a bicycle journey through Transylvania, highly recommended. 

Robert Fox, writing in The Telegraph, agrees: "One wonders whether this might be the book of a lifetime, with all its youthful vigour. Every page and paragraph says Blacker is a natural-born writer and teller of great tales."
