Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream during a three-month ride that takes in 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale.
