Overview

The inspiring story of the first people to ride mountain bikes across the vast deserts of Australia, the dangerous bushlands of Africa, and the mountains of South America
 

Fed up and disillusioned with corporate life, Andy persuaded Tim to leave his job and cycle around the world—convinced there could be more to life. Their goal was to become the first people to ride mountain bikes unsupported across the three southern continents and, in doing so, to raise money for the charity Intermediate Technology. This is a fast-moving tale of self-discovery, full of adventure, conflict, humor, danger, and a multitude of colorful characters. Much more than a travelogue, it proves ordinary people can chase great dreams.
