Paul is much more than your average cyclist. About five stones more.
Desperate to escape the daily grind, he heads for the Scottish Highlands and finds that a change involving a pushbike and hills isn't always as good as a rest for a fat bloke.
Fuelled by coffee, cake and conversations, this unlikely adventure takes Paul to the top of the world and the edge of despair. It's a journey of new experiences, stunning scenery, and the unexpected kindness of strangers.
'Fat Bloke on a Bike' follows Paul's novice attempt at cycle-touring as, huffing and puffing, he hauls his seventeen stones from Weardale in the North Pennines, along the North Sea Coast, and through Scotland's cities, islands and highlands to Inverness.
