Remember when you were a kid and you got your first bicycle? After a few weeks of mastering the dynamics of balancing, steering, and pedaling, all at the same time hopefully, your father released his protective, steadying grip on the seat and you went wobbling off on your own. It was probably your very first taste of independence and freedom and you knew you liked that feeling very much. Few things in life have ever compared to that first solo ride. Almost 40 years after my first solo bike ride, I was able to recapture the excitement and passion of that momentous occasion when I pedaled out of Anchorage, Alaska bound for Tierra del Fuego-the very tip of South America. No matter that it was 17,500 miles distant and would take 31⁄2 years to get there I vowed I would achieve that goal if it took the rest of my life.

Bob ('Buff3y') Stanley escapes the office in July 2011 to bicycle out of Deadhorse in far northern Alaska in order to travel southwards as far and the road will go. This ride will eventually cover two continents ending in Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina.This story of the eighteen-month 28,000 kilometre bicycle journey covers every latitude from the top to the bottom of the magnificent Americas and describes all of the joys, pains and challenges of the road, and the penning of a few highly questionable songs along the way. It is a celebration of freedom and of the pure joy of engaging with the world from the privileged vantage point of the bicycle.

Imagine reading a “Cycling Companion Wanted” ad in a bicycling newsletter for a cross-America bike trip, answering it, and setting off two months later with a woman you just met for a 3,500-mile, 60-day journey from California to Washington, DC. Taken from Virginia’s journal this tells the story of two twenty-nine year old adventurers who fulfill a common dream. She recalls exhilarating roads and landscapes, tedious miles, peaceful times, scary experiences, personal struggles, wonderful encounters with people, and the unfolding of a journey of a lifetime.

Plenty of retirees take a holiday. When Brian Rix retired after 36 years as a policeman in Victoria rather than hitching up the caravan, he put his wife, journalist Shirley Hardy-Rix, on the back of his motorcycle and headed off for a ride. For the next 16 months Brian and Shirley rode more than 83,000 kilometres through 32 countries on five continents with side trips to Antarctica and Galapagos Islands. They rode from the bottom of South America to the very top of North America. They rode over the Andes, sometimes more than 5,000 metres high. They rode through deserts, the tropics and up to Alaska. They had a catastrophic breakdown in the heart of bear country and suffered altitude sickness. The motorcycle didn't make it to Antarctica but they did - taking them from Antarctica Circle to the Arctic Circle... and then a bit more. Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout, Circle to Circle is an engaging account of the travels of an adventurous couple. It will entertain you in your armchair, or it may even inspire you to get up and go! Praise for Brian & Shirley's previous book, Two for the Road Makes you want to get up and go. Australian Women's Weekly Few books are as inspirational as that just written by Melbourne journalist Shirley Hardy-Rix and her policeman husband Brian Rix. Herald Sun For bikers and those with itchy feet. Sunday Age The inspiring story of two middle-aged adventurers. Manly Daily A great read for anyone with a yearning for the open road and exotic climes. West Australian A must-read for adventurous hearts. Canberra Times For anyone who's ever dreamed of escaping and experiencing the romance of the open road. Inverell Times This book might tip undecided travellers over the edge - no bad thing.

In 1849, several hundred thousand Europeans and Americans trekked across the country for the gold fields of California - the Gold Rush being a defining moment in this country's short (European) history. John Clark followed the same historic roads and trails, retracing that journey through history. His travels took him through violent ghettos and even more violent hurricanes, desert sandstorms and blazing heat - cycling in areas where no sane person would choose to cycle. Along the way, Clark meets crazed war veterans, failing farmers, unemployed Mexican migrants, the washed up and those left over from the American Dream, which the Gold Rush had done so much to form. His journey also takes him through the wildest, the most beautiful and remotest parts of America. Part travelogue, part political history, all incredibly well-written.

By most people's standards, Josie Dew is hugely adventurous. By American standards, she is completely insane. For Americans drive everywhere: through cinemas, restaurants, banks, even trees. But driving past Josie as she pedalled across America was a new and alarming experience. On her eight-month journey Josie experienced it all; race riots in Los Angeles, impossible heat in Death Valley, Sexual Tantric Seminars in Hawaii. From Utah to the Great Lakes, via improbable places like Zzyzx and Squaw Tit, her two-wheeled odyssey brought her into contact with all the wonders and worries of this larger-than-life country. Highly entertaining, richly informative, TRAVELS IN A STRANGE STATE is a personal memoir of an improbable journey, revealing the United States as it is rarely seen - from the seat of a bicycle.

Young and beautiful, Lois Pryce was a rising star at the BBC. Unbeknownst to her co-workers, Lois lived a parallel life as a biker babe with an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. So she packed in her career to ride her motorcycle on her own from the northernmost tip of Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America. Alone. Armed only with the Spanish words for 'caution' and 'cheese', Lois was rather under-prepared for multiple bear sightings, bribing her way through borders, spending a night in a Mexican brothel and crashing her bike in the wilds of Patagonia. She most certainly got the adventure she craved, and her pulse-pounding, soul-searching adventure has already attracted fans worldwide - a weblog that she kept whilst on her travels was receiving more than two-thousand hits a day. Her hilarious, brilliantly written travelog will appeal to anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking-it-all-in and running away to see the world.
