Erika Warmbrunn's plan began as a fantasy, a finger tracing an imaginary bicycle route through Asian places with exotic names. But after a theatrical translating job landed her in Vladivostok, her wistful dream took on hard road substantiality. Putting her acting career on hold, Warmbrunn started on her 8,000-kilometer pedal. Her account of this improvised tour of the subcontinent captures the wonder and otherness of other cultures without condescending. Too picaresque to be political, Where the Pavement Ends has the surge and wobble of our first favorite bike.
