Editorial Reviews

Latoya Miller
It's important in life to be challenged to do something, be something greater. Traveling at the Speed of Life reminds us that we can be doing a little bit more.
Malini Sekhar
Traveling at the Speed of Life and the story of David Sylvester are so special because they are honest and real. Dave weaves surprising insights and earnest reflections into each adventure and bike journey, even when it is not pretty. That alone is inspiring, and that is what makes this book so inspiring. By the end, you wonder what you, yourself are waiting for? What is stopping you from making your dreams happen? And that to me, makes Dave worth knowing, and his story worth reading
