Inhaltsangabe

Many dream of dropping everything and just traveling around the world. It's a common dream, but few imagine embarking on that journey by bicycle. Exposed to the elements, legs burning, all your possessions strapped to you and your bicycle--it doesn't paint a relaxing picture, but this is just what Pierre-Yves Tremblay did.

Leaving his hometown of Chicoutimi, Quebec, in July 1994, Tremblay took a flight to Europe; from Paris he hopped on his bike and went for a long ride around the world that lasted all of 836 days. He traveled through Europe, past the deserts of the Middle East, then braved the Himalayas and rode through Southeast Asia and the wilds of Australia before finishing his journey by biking across the United States and arriving back home in Canada.

Besides the sheer physical effort, this epic adventure is about a person confronting himself, alone with his bike, encountering life, its possibilities, and its limits, dealing with emotions and everything that compels him to keep going and persevere. It means exchanging greetings and sharing moments with people from many different cultures. It means overcoming hundreds of pitfalls only to keep on going.

Fifteen and a half thousand miles later, this modern-day Ulysses invites us to read the precious journals he kept on his odyssey. Here you'll find out what really pushes great achievers to their limits.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
