Decent book about a guy who meets a girl who wants to bike (bicycle not motorcycle) across the US. Starting in Wisconsin and heading to Portland. A good book, enjoyable and fun. Their voyage of self-discovery is an easy read if sometimes a bit sad. Still would highly recommend as good travel book.

I do not recommend riding your indoor exercise bike through some of these chapters, because it'll make you feel like an idiot. What? No dust? No head-winds? No angry girlfriend? Then what's the point! Otherwise, a good book!

I felt like I was on this journey with Brian and Rachel..a silent third'wheel'
On their 24 hundred mile journey- their surprising discoveries about others goodness, and their own flaws.
Such a great read .Envy their stamina, their encounters and the wonderful (mostly) strangers they met.
