This is a proper travelogue - a joyful, moving and stereotype-busting tale.--National Geographic Traveller
The story of an epic journey that takes the myths and unravels them first hand.--Motorcycle Sport & Leisure
Long before the relaunch of BA's Tehran flights signalled a thumbsup to travel, Lois Pryce was gadding about the country on a motorbike.--Sunday Times
Full of funny asides and snappy accounts.--Sunday Telegraph
An excellent, fascinating read.--Wanderlust
A gutsy tale of one woman and her bike, told with vigour and honesty.--The Irish Times
If you still need to know why the motorcycle is a magical device for revealing the truth about this wonderful, endangered world, read Lois Pryce's sometimes frightening, sometimes hilarious, always warm-hearted testament. That will do it for you. Thank you Lois, so much.--Ted Simon, author of 'Jupiter's Travels'
Lois Pryce writes with all the exuberance and verve with which she dons her helmet and takes to the road.--Benedict Allen

Breezy and upbeat... it's enough to make readers reach for their helmets and aim for a remote part of the globe.--New York Times
Pryce writes as she acts, with an easy ebullience, and this makes interesting things happen to her. Revolutionary Ride is likeable because she admits her ignorance and follows her nose.--Daily Telegraph
Within a few pages I'd recognised a kindred spirit. Tourist-free solo travelling, lo-fi equipment including real maps instead of gadgets, a satisfying blend of action, thought and feeling, well-timed references to or quotes from one of my own heroines since I was a teenager. That central theme - the distinction between government and people - is not easy to maintain but it seemed to me Lois hit the right note every time.--Dervla Murphy, author of 'Full Tilt'
Lois Pryce's motorbike takes her into corners of modern Iranian life that are full of the unexpected.--James Buchan, author of 'Days of God: The Revolution in Iran and Its Consequences'
