About the Book

The Ecstasy, The Energy And The Courage Of Your Journey A blank spot on the map dances with your imagination. What treasures might it hold? As you swing your leg over the top tube, your touring bike allows you unlimited freedom of flight for your body, mind and spirit. Slip your hands into your riding gloves. Grab those handlebars. Press your feet onto the pedals. Click the brake handles. Slide your derriere onto the saddle. Look toward the distant horizon that beckons your dreams. Feel the energy coursing through your body. Make that first pedal stroke downward as your thighs lift you onto adventure highway. Time means nothing now. It slips away as easily as grains of sand on a wind-swept beach. But those grains only trade places. On your bike, you move into that blank spot—new locations in the passage of time. The pedaling becomes incidental—like breathing. The hills and mountains come and go—your legs powering over them in a kind of winsome trance. Grappling with headwinds brings determination; while riding a tailwind fetches ecstasy. Rain drenches you during a bicycle adventure, yet promises a rainbow. Bicycle travel demands you dig deep into the art of living. Each challenge lets you know you’re vibrantly alive. You transform into a state of bliss, much like an eagle gliding over majestic mountains. You see them soaring, just living. You soar with them as you glide down a mountain grade. Those moments present you with uncommon experiences that give your life eternal expectation. That’s bicycle adventure!” Frosty Wooldridge, six continent world bicycle traveler.
