The return of the Derby Book Festival brings with it Tim Moore and an event specifically tailored to all cycling fanatics and those seeking adventure!

Moore’s latest book recounts his hideously over-ambitious challenge to cycle the length of the old Iron Curtain on a two-wheeled East German shopping bike. That’s 9,000km and 20 countries in 3 months on a 1960s version of a Boris Bike!

Join us on Sunday 5 June at the Derby Arena as we pedal through this unique and exhilarating account of Moore’s adventures. The event will run from 3.30 - 4.30pm, and costs only £10 (including tea and cake).

Check out the website,, for more information on this event, and others taking place throughout the Festival.
