Life is a Wheel - You Must Read Bruce Weber's Book.

Say you like to read. And/or you're a cyclist. Adventurer.  Seeker of truth, wisdom and spiritual insight.  And you've hankered to make a cross-country journey on two wheels and under your own steam.  

Then, here's YOUR book.

I just finished Life is a Wheel by New York Times writer Bruce Weber.  When you, too, read it, I think you'll be inspired, elated and uber-connected to this guy, his trip, his trans-continental introspection and reflections, his life.

What I really mean is:  wow. Thanks, Bruce, for the profound effort and, since I read the review in a bicycle magazine, thanks to "Adventure Cycling" for the intro.

Let me quote from publisher Scribner:  "Part travelogue, part memoir, part romance, part paean to the bicycle as a simple mode of both transportation and self-expression -- and part bemused and panicky account of a middle-aged man's attempt to stave off, well, you know -- Life is a Wheel is an elegant and beguiling escape for biking enthusiasts, armchair travelers, and any readers who are older than they were yesterday."
