Plump, grumpy, slumped on the couch, and going nowhere fast at age 16, Phil Gaimon began riding a bicycle with the grand ambition of shedding a few pounds before going off to college. He soon fell into racing and discovered he was a natural, riding his way into a pro contract after just one season despite utter ignorance of a century of cycling etiquette. Now, in his book Pro Cycling on $10 a Day, Phil brings the full powers of his wit to tell his story. Presented here as a guide--and a warning--to aspiring racers who dream of joining the professional racing circus, Phil's adventures in road rash serve as a hilarious and cautionary tale of frustrating team directors and broken promises. Phil's education in the ways of the peloton, his discouraging negotiations for a better contract, his endless miles crisscrossing America in pursuit of race wins, and his conviction that somewhere just around the corner lies the ticket to the big time fuel this tale of hope and ambition from one of cycling's best story-tellers. Pro Cycling on $10 a Day chronicles the racer's daily lot of blood-soaked bandages, sleazy motels, cheap food, and overflowing toilets. But it also celebrates the true beauty of the sport and the worth of the journey, proving in the end that even among the narrow ranks of world-class professional cycling, there will always be room for a hard-working outsider.

After the death of his son, Will, in the 2001 airplane crash that also took the lives of nine other members of the Oklahoma State basketball family, survival became the most important word in Bill Hancock's vocabulary. For Hancock, the director of the NCAA men's basketball fournament, survival meant discovering a path back to a nearnormal life. That path took him on his dream journey, from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic-by bicycle. The 2,700-mile odyssey grew to be more than mere physical exercise; it became a pilgrimage of transcendental proportions. Pedaling 85 miles each day was only half the battle.

In the Americas we join a family bikepacking trip in Ecuador; we pedal the Natchez Trace Parkway and stop at legendary music spots; we ride the Pacific Coast Highway in Oregon and California; go mountain biking in Moab and Canada; and explore the cities of Buenos Aires and New York by bicycle. European rides include easy-going trips around Lake Constance, along the Danube and the Loire, and coast-to-coast routes; routes in Tuscany, Spain and Corsica; and professional journeys up Mt Ventoux and around the Tour of Flanders. In Asia, we venture through Vietnam's valleys; complete the Mae Hong Son circuit in northern Thailand; cross the Indian Himalayas; and pedal through Bhutan. And in Australia and New Zealand we take in Tasmania and Queensland by mountain bike; cycle into Victoria's high country and around Adelaide on road bikes; and try some of New Zealand's celebrated cycle trails. Each ride is illustrated with stunning photography and a map. A toolkit of practical details - where to start and finish, how to get there, where to stay and more - helps riders plan their own trips. There are also suggestions for three more similar rides around the world for each story. Each piece shows how cycling is a fantastic way to get to know a place, a people and their culture.

Washington introduces his best friends from school to his father whose shocking and harsh but eventually prescient response to the introduction reveals a post-independent Kenyan society that is markedly different from the one the son has hitherto shared with the friends. The father's brutal honesty leaves an indelible mark on the little boy's psyche and sets Washington off on a long and oftentimes arduous journey that takes him from the rural, familiar and safe albeit hardy surroundings of Apondo, Nyanza, Kenya to the sandy beaches of San Diego, Southern California, finally settling him in the world-famous climes of Silicon Valley, Northern California. Washington repeats a journey first undertaken by thousands in the 1700s: A journey that became an annual ritual for millions thereafter; all in their pursuit of their dream; their American Dream.
