            Signs of Life: To the Ends of the Earth with a Doctor (Hardback, Main)

            In 2010 Stephen Fabes rode away from his career as an emergency doctor in London, on a journey that would see him ride the length of six continents; a cycling circumnavigation which took six years. Signs of Life is his story of a world of challenges - from Tajik camel spiders to ...camping on a frozen lake in Mongolia, to coaxing another few kilometres out of 'Ol' Patchy' (his faithful inner tube), and of fascinating interactions with the people of seventy-five countries; from hospitable nomads and curious children to vindictive border guards and gangsters. It is also a story of medicine calling Stephen back; he recalls his first pronouncement of death as he examines the frozen body of a monk high in the Himalayas; he is drawn into treating patients at a leprosy clinic; he helps refugees at The Jungle in Calais. All the while, he reflects on how societies treat their most vulnerable and draws comparisons with the lost souls he had treated back home in London; people who he resolves to truly listen to, when he returns to his vocation.

            This book tells the story of the cyclists who were overcome by the need to venture forth on two wheels; the courageous men and women who undertook some of the most epic bicycle journeys of all time. While many of Australia's bicycle pioneers rode to beat records or be the first, ...others rode for no other reason than to immerse themselves in the wild. They willingly surrendered themselves to their fate in a land at once majestic, magical and hostile. Fortunately for us these bicycle pioneers were not content to merely ride. They wanted to share their experience with other like-minded folk and Australian readers devoured their stories; heady accounts filled with unbridled wonder, drama and derring-do. The journeys retold in this book are a thrilling reminder of a period of exploration largely forgotten in the age of the motorcar. We might simply choose to enjoy these pioneering feats vicariously from the comfort of our armchairs. Or, we might be inspired to venture out on our own pedal powered explorations. At the very least, they will make our excuses to not go for a ride seem rather feeble indeed!
