Once every year, on a Saturday night in May, occurs a festival of kitsch inanity called the Eurovision Song Contest.

It sets off to discover from the singers themselves what it is like to find yourself atop the windswept summit of Mount Fiasco

In 1608, court jester Thomas Coryate set off from Britain on a journey around Europe which became known as The Grand Tour, a vital part of the education for young 18th-century aristocrats. Some 400 years later, Tim Moore dons a purple velvet suit and drives a clapped-out old Rolls-Royce through Europe following this renowned route in a hilarious parody of old-time style

"In 1989 Tim Moore moved into the last house in Chiswick with an outside toilet. Intrigued by a subsequent encounter with an elderly former resident, and shamed to confess the phobic haste with which he demolished this facility, he finds himself inspired to travel back to the land before now, experiencing the horny-handed hardships and homespun pleasures enjoyed and endured by Moores gone by."

The cyclist who went out in the cold : adventures riding the Iron Curtain by Tim Moore( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his 'so-small bicycle' are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink
Another fine mess by Tim Moore( Recording )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lacking even the most basic mechanical knowhow, Tim Moore sets out to cross Trumpland USA in an original Model T Ford. Armed only with a fan belt made of cotton, wooden wheels and a trunkload of "wise-ass Limey liberal gumption", his route takes him exclusively through Donald-voting counties, meeting the everyday folks who voted red along the way. He meets a people defined by extraordinary generosity, willing to shift heaven and earth to keep him on the road. And yet, this is clearly a nation in conflict with itself: citizens "tooling up" in reaction to ever-increasing security fears; a healthcare system creaking to support sugar-loaded soda lovers; a disintegrating rust belt all but forgotten by the warring media and political classes
Gironimo! Ein Mann, ein Rad und die härteste Italien-Rundfahrt aller Zeiten by Tim Moore( )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Eroica für die Lachmuskeln: Eine Italien-Rundfahrt wie vor hundert JahrenZwölf Jahre, nachdem sich Tim Moore über die Originalstrecke der modernen Tour de France gequält hat, fasst er den Entschluss, sich einer noch imposanteren Herausforderung aus einer Ära echter, tadelloser Radsporthelden zu stellen - und stößt auf den Giro d'Italia 1914, das vielleicht grausamste Radrennen der Geschichte. 400 Kilometer lange Nonstop-Etappen durch verheerende nächtliche Unwetter; unaufhörliche Sabotageakte; Rotwein und rohe Eier als Marschverpflegung: Von den 81 Rennfahrern, die dereinst in Mailand losrol
Gironimo! : riding the very terrible 1914 tour of Italy by Tim Moore( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1914 Giro d'Italia was the most difficult bike race in history; eighty-one riders started and only eight finished. Now Tim Moore is going to attempt it himself, and he's committed to total authenticity. Twelve years after Tim Moore toiled around the route of the Tour de France, he senses his achievement being undermined by the truth about "Horrid Lance." His rash response is to take on a fearsome challenge from an age of untarnished heroes: the notorious 1914 Giro d'Italia. History's most appalling bike race was an ordeal of 400-kilometer stages filled with cataclysmic storms, roads strewn with nails, and even the loss of an eye by one competitor--and it was all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine. Of the eighty-one riders who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. To truly capture the essence of what these riders endured a century ago, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless, wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike, some maps, and an alarming period outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. As Moore rides up and over the Alps and then down to the Adriatic (with only wine corks for brakes), Gironimo! is an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful, and madly inspiring
Frost on my moustache : the Arctic exploits of a lord and a loafer by Tim Moore( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guided by the fastidious journals of an eminent Victorian adventurer by the name of Lord Dufferin, Time Moore sets off to prove his mettle in the most stunningly inhospitable place on Earth-the Arctic. Armed only with his searing wit, wicked humor, and seasickness pills, our pale suburbanite-wracked by second thoughts of tactical retreat-confronts mind-numbing cold, blood-thirsty polar bears, a convoy of born-again Vikings, and, perhaps most chilling of all, herring porridge. When he is not humiliating himself through displays of ignorance and incompetence, Moore casts a sharp eye on the local flora and fauna, immersing readers in the splendors and wonders of this treacherously beautiful region. A deliciously and inexhaustibly funny book, Frost on My Moustache deserves to be placed alongside those by Evelyn Waugh, Eric Newby, and Bill Bryson

Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, Moore and his "so-small bicycle" are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older
