Unhindered by metal, glass, speed or apparent affluence, his bicycle allowed him to find the isolated corners far from the beaten path, and to make contact with the people, the land, and the elements. Each journey was an increase in the unknowns and challenges, but each journey also saw gains in skills, capabilities and confidences.
The journeys were not only grand adventures and explorations across the world but a journey within.

About the Author
Matthew has published two adventure narratives about several of his journeys: Solo Bicycle Journeys Across Six Continents and Hard Road to Nirvana, thoughtful and dramatic stories about hard won explorations by bicycle across the planet. He has also published six fine art photography books of candid and spontaneous photographs of people from non-western countries, under the series title, International Celebration of Culture, with individual titles: Women, Men, Kids, Parent and Child, Faith, and Marketplace. These books celebrate humanity and cultural diversity, an aspect that is diminishing as the world becomes progressively more modern. Matthew's work places emphasis on traditional culture, activity, religion and the array of human emotion and activity within life and landscape. When not at large exploring the world he can be often found along the trails and roads in the mountains of Colorado
