Jerry Holl's Downhills Don't Come Free: One Man's Bike Ride from Alaska PDF

By Jerry Holl

cycling from Alaska to Mexico solo is difficult sufficient. but if you throw in undesirable climate, flat tires, hair-raising roadways, and unpredictable grizzly bears, just a idiot may continue going.

Fortunately, Jerry Holl was once simply the idiot for this actual two-wheeled odyssey. Coming off a life of company positions, he wasn’t precisely prepared—his such a lot depended on significant other at the journey was once a motorbike he didn’t understand how to mend. yet inexperience and absence of a concrete plan didn’t cease him. For fifty-one days, Holl pedaled his approach throughout nations, encountering every little thing bizarre and wondrous North the United States needed to supply.

Downhills Don’t Come loose takes you thru the ups and downs (literal and figurative) of Holl’s experience. through turns fun and reflective, self-deprecating and confident, it chronicles each point of the adventure, from the breathtaking vastness of the Alaskan-Canadian barren region to the fortitude, generosity, and eccentricity of the folks he met alongside the way.
