When you have a job, family, bills, and other people who depend on you, the idea of chucking it all and heading across the country on a bike is pretty much just a dream…for now. I both satisfy and feed that urge by following others’ travels.
By far the best source has been Crazy Guy on a Bike. Recently I stumbled across Self Propelled by Geoff Winslow. Not only did he take a good trip across the US, but he took great pictures, and most of all, he took the time to write well about it. https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?o=Sh&page_id=359877&v=rB
I’ll put it like this: One of my all time favorite books is Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon. It chronicles the journey around the country of a man who hit spiritual bottom, and how he finds himself by looking both outward and inward. Mr. Winslow’s blog has the potential to be just as good a book. I hope he considers it and finds a publisher.
Highly recommended reading.
