"David Sedaris trapped in the body of Lance Armstrong."--"Akron Beacon Journal"

The fifth book in the Metal Cowboy series hits the open road in high gear and never looks back. Whether he's outsprinting African elephants and dictators in Zimbabwe or confounding Mexican freedom fighters in Copper Canyon with nothing more than broken Spanish, questionable geopolitical skills, and the magic of a bicycle, Joe "Metal Cowboy" Kurmaskie has mastered the painful art of falling down and the flat-out rush of getting back up again. He celebrates beautiful wrecks on five continents, the extraordinary people met along the way, and all the awe-inspiring, sweat-soaked miles ridden in between.

This collection, a kaleidoscope of bicycle touring adventures told through exuberant stories spanning four decades and thirty countries, with many illustrations, embraces the absurdity of living at any speed, the fragility in each of us the world over, and simple wonders waiting just up the road.
