For a four-thousand-mile bicycle ride across America, Joe's seven-year-old son Quinn rides a tagalong bike attached to his dad's, and behind that is five-year-old Enzo in a bike trailer. Our hero the Metal Cowboy answers the question "What are you, crazy?" with a resounding "Yes."

With no support crew except his boys' comic relief and the kindness of strangers, he pedals hundreds of pounds of gear and offspring over mountain passes, through thunderstorms, and into the heart of what it means to be a dad.

Editorial Reviews

Back Cover - Bart King
“With his two sons in tow providing moral support (and comic relief), Joe Kurmaskie treats us to a reader’s trifecta: a humorous travelogue, a stirring adventure tale, and a touching family story.”
Back Cover - Tom Lang
“Give Huck Finn a bicycle, give Lance Armstrong a sense of humor, and give Jack Kerouac a good editor and you have Joe Kurmaskie’s latest road trip. Hilarious. A one-of-a-kind voice in the travel world.”
