Descrizione

When author John Eyberg announced his plan to bicycle two thousand miles across Texas and back, most people thought he was crazy. But for Eyberg, it was a goal hed dreamed about for yearsa feat only the supremely confident or utterly foolhardy would attempt. In Dryd, Fryd, and Skyd by Headwinds and Heat, he provides a day-by-day journal of his travels beginning June 11, 2011, when he climbed on his tandem recumbent Doublevision and pushed off from El Paso, Texas, in 101-degree heat for a planned forty-three-day ride.

In this travel memoir, Eyberg narrates his odysseyhis battles with the intense sun and the often strong headwinds, the route and topography he covered from El Paso to Houston, the gracious and generous people he met throughout his journey, the effects he felt on his middle-age body, and the mechanical breakdowns he experienced.

A detailed account of one mans personal biking adventure, Dryd, Fryd, and Skyd by Headwinds and Heat shows Eybergs commitment to his adage: you dont know until you go.
