David Lamb's journey on a sleek 21 speed touring bicycle carried him 3145 miles from his home near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC all the way to the pier in Santa Monica California  The result is a highly personal account of coming to grips ,


Melville like he slips in chapters about the history of bicycling Lamb s writing is simple and graceful and he views non coastal America with great affection Far from an elite athlete the author undertakes a cross country bicycle trip and chronicles it with the sharp eye of an experienced journalistNothing really extraordinary happens but Lamb s escription of the ordinary is captivating For instance his trek through the bleak headwind laden Oklahoma panhandle seems at once reary but his account of it makes it mysteriously alluringIn the end Lamb concludes that crossing the country by bicycle was not end Lamb concludes that crossing the country by bicycle was not big a eal If a non athletic middle aged smoker could The Billionaire Daddy do it then most anyone couldThe tripidn t change him or make him a bett I read this years ago long before I ever thought of riding across America Found it intriguing then but how much now that I can relate to his experiences note of course that he Pistols for Two did it long before there were so many cross country riders he says that he met only six other bicyclists along the way Heid it self supported motels without training and without giving up his cigarette habit Although I idn t ride solo I agree with his assessmentBicycling solo across the America is a Low Risk Doable Challenge risk doable challenge fact that so many people I met thought it was an impossible undertaking perhaps had to o with how challenge fact that so many people I met thought it was an impossible undertaking perhaps had to Loss (Gus Dury, do with how adventure and uncertainty they were willing to accept in their lives than itid with my own The Last Rite (Danilov Quintet, daringBeing an oldish and fattish woman who has accomplished this trip twice I believe that it is something anyone cano if they have the spirit to Alacrity (Illumine, do so and are willing to undergo some temporary suffering In 1995 the author David Lambecided to take two months away from an established career in journalism valiantly unplugging from irect eposit and in order to sojourn across the continental US on an aging bicycle He Love You To Death (Detective Ruby Preston, did most of the ride solo and unsupported armed only with his wit and charm this was before the widespread use of cellphones or Google Maps and when it was over he captured the experience in thiselightful memoir It s an entertaining mix of anecdote bicycle lore and recent US history a self propelled variation on William Heat Moon s Blue Highways i highly recommend this book to anyone interested in aging well or touring the USA from the ynamic euilibrium of a bicycle seat. Sible to those unfortunate travelers held hostage by the interstate  The journey took him three months and Over the Hills is the magnificent result a literary travelogue funny and celebratory a story about people met and physical challenges overcome. ,
