Excellent. After hearing Willie is person the book reads with his incredible voice in my ear. He is the ultimate adventure cyclist, challenging us all to broaden our horizons let go of our inhibitions in traveling to new and unusual places.

Excellent reading. I enjoyed it very much and wanted to read it over again after I finished. What really struck me was the kindness Willie was shown all over the world. It helped to restore some of the faith in humanity I have lost over the years.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about bicycling, traveling or learning about other places, cultures and people.

What a great story about wonderful people all over the world. This book makes me feel inspired to travel by bike anywhere. You gain insight into how folks live in other parts of the world--an inside snapshot of what life is like across the globe. I prefer to read about the journey and not just how fast you went. Several of my biking friends passed around a copy of the book and now want their own copy.

A very inspirational read. As a touring adventure cyclist I am often in awe of the places Willie Weir has been and appreciate his open loving fearless view of people everywhere and his beautiful, poetic descriptions of the faraway lands I wlould also like to visit. By bicycle, of course!

Just one more...Rating:

Each chapter is a self-contained short story and I found myself saying "Just one more story" over and over again before I could actually put the book down. Each story is well written and highlights a specific aspect of bicycle touring. I found the book quite inspiring especially with regard to traveling in regions I would have never considered visiting, let alone regions for bike touring. I will even go as far as putting this book in a category of mandatory reading for all adventure cyclists!
