This Road I Ride : My Incredible Journey from Novice to Fastest Woman to Cycle the Globe Paperback

Description

In December 2012, Juliana Buhring became the first woman to circumnavigate the world by bicycle.

With only a few months of training and little sponsorship, support or money she left from Naples on 23 July 2012 to cycle the world.

Raised in a religious cult as a child, Juliana finally broke away as a young adult and found her soul mate - an explorer seeking the source of unmapped rivers in Africa.

When he was killed by a crocodile, her world went dark.

To escape her grief, she decided to set herself a challenge.

Having never seriously ridden a bike, she set out to ride around the world. 18,000 miles, 152 days, 4 continents, 19 countries, 29 punctures, 6 big mountains, 1 desert and a cyclone later, she made it back just days before Christmas with a Guinness World Record.

Empowering, inspiring, often humorous, This Road I Ride is testimony to the power of sheer will to overcome any obstacle. Discover a true story of adventure, blood, sweat and gears.
