Book Description

Accompany three forty-something biker chicks as they cycle across America! For fifty-nine days, Kathy, Cindy and Mary Anne pedal 3,150 miles from California to Virginia. Their journey takes them through lush green valleys, up steep mountains, by farms, and past desolate rangeland. On the road they battle inclement weather, intense heat, fierce headwinds, nasty dogs, aching bodies, and flat tires. Their inner strength, their determination, and the kindness of strangers sustains them along the way. They discover small town America, a diverse beautiful country, and themselves.


Book Review

"What a delightful joy ride you will be in for as you read this terrific book about three women in their forties who take a two-month cycling trip from California to Virginia. Reminiscent of Charles Kuralt's award winning TV series, On the Back Roads of America, Kathryn Krull, wife and mother of twin teenagers, tells with humor, joy, and beauty of the sights she and her biking "buds" pass along the way; the kind, friendly folks they meet, and the little-known historical facts they learn on their cross-country trip. And if this isn't enough, the book is chockfull of information for anyone who wants to take a long bicycle trip. This is a treasure of a book, no matter whether you've ever been on a bike or are a seasoned cyclist. For me, the best thing when I finished the book, I felt like I'd taken the trip with them, except that my legs weren't one bit tired!"
