Bearback: The World Overland, Dr Pat Garrod


Hardback, 1st edition, Signed by author on inside front cover, Very Good Condition with slight liquid damage to bottom edge of DJ.

Pat Garrod (b. Chelmsford 1964) is a British physician and long distance motorcyclist. He and his wife Vanessa Lewis undertook a 100,000-mile (160,000 km) round-the-world ride on a 1991 BMW R100GS, between 1998 and October, 2002.

His 2010 book Bearback — The World Overland describing the 4-year journey was called as a “damned good story” by Overland magazine, and evidence of improving quality in self-published overland adventure books.

After the circumnavigation, Garrod and Lewis crossed Africa twice more by motorcycle. One north-to-south traversal in 2006 was more than 20,000 kilometres (12,000 mi) long; Garrod’s travel log records a total of over 65,000 miles (105,000 km) in Africa alone.
