With no prior experience in either bicycle touring or marriage, 52-year-olds Tim and Debbie Bishop went from an engagement, to Tim’s “retirement” and relocation, to a cross-country trek in just ten weeks. Their adventure, which touches on midlife change, marriage, and faith, inspires its readers to cast away the old and the stale in pursuit of their dreams.
MY REVIEW: What an exciting adventure......marriage for the first time at age 51 for Tim and for Debbie and then to bicycle from the west coast to the east coast for their honeymoon. I read this book in one afternoon and was constantly showing my husband pictures from the book and reading portions of the book to him. I have always thought it would be fun to give up our jobs and home and live in a camper, but bicycling is an extreme undertaking. Tim and Debbie described scenery so well that I felt like I was traveling right along side them. I shared in their joys and pains and appreciate the way they found a stop near a church each week. Enjoy the thrill of the ride with Tim and Debbie Bishop!
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Open Road Press, in exchange for an honest review.
