Do yourself a favor--read this.,
This review is from: Travels with Willie: Adventure Cyclist (Paperback)
I read the first 3/4 of this book in the first sitting and only stopped myself because I didn't want the experience to end. Let me say that I am *not* a cycler. In fact, I'm embarrassed to say when the last time I rode a bike was. But I love to read books about travel--but this isn't just a travel book. And it's more than great storytelling, too. The chapters are like little meditations on acceptance and curiosity and engagement and fate and circumstance--and dozens of other things. And although the backdrop is the globe and will affect how I experience my future travels, it also made me think about my daily life and how I travel through it. What a trip.
