Lois on the Loose

One Woman, One Motorbike, 20,000 Miles across the Americas
Author Lois Pryce's book Lois on the Loose about her motorcycle adventure across the Americas

Lois on the Loose is the story of how Lois quit her desk job at the BBC and set off alone to ride 20,000 miles from Alaska to Argentina.

Thoroughly underprepared, with a newly-acquired motorcycle licence and just two Spanish words in her lexicon, she certainly got the adventure she craved. Dodging bears in Alaska, bribing her way through borders and crashing in the wilds of Patagonia, her blog of the journey picked up a worldwide following, and upon her return, Lois on the Loose was published, becoming a travel classic that has inspired countless others to follow in her footsteps.

If you’ve ever dreamed of escaping the day job for a life on the road, this book is for you.

Published in the UK by Arrow Books and in the USA by Octane Press. It has also been translated into German, Dutch and Italian.
