Very enjoyable nonfiction! I knew next to nothing about the challenging bike trails that Sean Dietrich tackled and describes in this book. I loved the combination of travel and historical information along with the author’s light-hearted comedy. His descriptions of various parts of his long ride with his wife were well-written and allowed me to really “see” the scenery and picture the various people, animals and specific places that they encountered. I admire Sean and Jamie for “doing something big” and staying determined to complete both trails in spite of numerous obstacles and discomforts. That determination is inspirational! I would actually have enjoyed more history, character descriptions and information around Sean’s thoughts and emotions while doing his ride because the book almost seemed too short. Very different from my usual nonfiction reads.
