Hannibal? As in Hannibal Lecter?

When you read the title of this book your imagination immediately goes into overtime, churning out a plethora of possible synopses. Felix Lowe doesn't disappoint.

Climbs and Punishment is an addictive, clever, and laugh-out-loud hilarious account of raconteur Felix Lowe's epic cycling quest from Baraclona to Rome.

Crossing three countries and three mountain ranges, Lowe follows in the tracks of some of the world's greatest wheelmen and the celebrated Carthaginian general, Hannibal (no, not Hannibal Lecter), who led 37 elephants on the same journey, almost bringing the Roman Empire to its knees.

Through his witty narrative, Lowe pays homage to the sport of cycling, examines the psychology of amateurs and pros alike, and delves into the march of a historical military genius.

We hope you have some time on your hands, because you're not going to want to put this book down.
