Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the story of Barbara and Larry Savage's sometimes dangerous, often zany, but ultimately rewarding 23,000 miles global bicycle odyssey, which took them through 25 countries in two years. Miles From Nowhere is an adventure not to be missed!

Along the way, these near-neophyte cyclists encountered warm-hearted strangers eager to share food and shelter, bicycle-hating drivers who shoved them off the road, various wild animals (including a roof ape and an attack camel), sacred cows, rock-throwing Egyptians, overprotective Thai policeman, motherly New Zealanders, meteorological disasters, bodily indignities, and great personal joys. The stress of traveling together constantly for two years tested and ultimately strengthened the young couple's relationship.

Review:

"...over 300 pages of the most delightful travel literature I have ever read." Santa Barbara News-Press

Review:

"I'm usually not a fan of travelogues, but Barbara Savage has an honest way of writing, without fluff or fanfare or waxing poetic, that appealed to me immediately." girlbike.com

Synopsis:

Funny, honest, poignant account of the Savages' 2-year, 23,000 mile, 25-country tour.
