Can I Tell You Something?

Captain Century’s American Bianchi Bicycle Diaries


Mark Pritchard has spent much of his life riding his beloved Bianchi bicycles around Britain and Europe. In May 2018 he achieved a lifetime ambition when he left the UK to cycle 3,400 miles across the USA to Boston. Over the six weeks of his tour he learnt a lot about this great country and its people. Can I Tell You Something? is the story of the places he visited, the history and culture he discovered and the people he met and rode with along the way. 

Mark’s view from the saddle provides a unique insight into America and its people, as he travels from the hustle and bustle of the West Coast through the harsh arid deserts and into the vast agricultural landscapes of the Midwest and on to the tranquillity of rural upstate New England, Mark gets to the very heart of this country and its people. 

This is not just a cycling tour however, it is also a story of a romance that grew and continued after Mark arrived in Boston. Taken from his diaries written from the tour, Can I Tell You Something? is a chronicle of a fantastic journey and a love letter to the very special person that he met on the road.
