A Bicyclist in Michigan
I gained an understanding of ultra marathon cycling and the Race Across America when I was invited to crew for a solo rider in 2000. Ever since then, I have told the story countless times, trying to express to people outside of the Ultra Cycling Community exactly what the race is about. But my descriptions are usually insufficient.
So far, this is the only writing I have found able to clearly express the aspects of the sport and race that confound most people with disbelief.
For those not interested in cycling, it is still a great book to read. The "plot" is cycling, but the story is much, much more.
Through his struggles, George Thomas has proven that the only thing more limiting to man than the laws of nature is his own psychology. George has made the impossible possible, he has transformed himself from limited to limitless, and the authors tell his story in such a way to make readers realize that accomplishment, no matter what kind, is always within reach, as long as you're willing to stretch and believe.
