Around the World on a Mountain Bike

Well written account of travelling around the world on a mountain bike! The author does a great job of making the reader feel like he is riding along. I felt like I was also riding in the deserts in Africa and then China and suffering from lack of water and food! I wonder how he even made it through these horrors!
