About the Book

Nowhere in the world can you be arrested for having too much fun while riding a bicycle! Unless, of course, you read 'BICYCLING AROUND THE WORLD'! Whether you're 'flying' over 15,000 foot passes with two condors in the Andes, riding with an emu in the Australian Outback, facing a king cobra in Nepal or meeting a man walking across America on his hands, Wooldridge carries readers into the astounding world of long distance bicycle touring.

From the first chapter to the last, you're riding on the edge of your seat with laughter and wonder. This is the best of 26 years in the saddle. If you've never smelled the breath of a grizzly bear in camp, you will. You'll find out how he discovered the 'Voluptuousness of Living'. Wooldridge meets fascinating men and women from around the globe that will astound and inspire you.

This book mesmerizes readers with animal stories that bring a smile to your face. It will pain your mind and heart seeing the Third World. It chills you with a once-in-a-lifetime ride in Antarctica where you'll meet a family of Emperor penguins. Along the way, you'll find out that you have to go without a mirror, sometimes, in order to see yourself. The greatest aspect of this book comes from--expectation! Not since 'Miles From Nowhere' has a writer captured the Zen and Art of Bicycle Adventure as well as Wooldridge. Not only that, you enjoy a final section--'EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LONG DISTANCE TOURING'. He shows you 'HOW TO LIVE THE DREAM'. You'll have the right bike, equipment, money and tools to ride into your own long distance touring adventures. If you like bicycling, you'll go wild reading this book. If you don't like bicycling, you'll still go wild reading this book.
