The tale of a scenic cycling trip—including an index of the 50 finest beers tasted on the trip "One more wouldn't hurt," said Mick. I looked at him doubtfully. "I'm not sure. It's gone three o'clock already. What time does it get dark in Cornwall at this time of year?" "Not for ages," said Mick, waving his hand dismissively. "One more and then we'll get on." He headed back to the bar with our empty beer glasses. As Ellie's 50th birthday approaches and her ambitions of a steady income, a successful career, and an ascent of Everest seem as far away as ever, she begins to doubt she's capable of achieving anything at all. So when her best friend Mick suggests a grueling cycle ride from Land's End to John O'Groats, she takes up the challenge. They opt for the scenic route which takes them along cycle paths, towpaths, and the back roads and byways of Britain, unable to resist sampling local beers in the pubs they pass along the way. But as the pints start to stack up faster than the miles they’re putting under their tires, Ellie wonders if they'll ever make it to the finishing line.

“Mud, Sweat, and Gears is not only an incredible human-powered journey, but it’s also about the intricate, poignant and often hilarious family dynamics that result. The Metal Cowboy’s most compelling book yet.” —Heidi Swift, The Oregonian After seventeen years, who would road test a perfectly good marriage by putting it on a summer-long, self-contained bicycle adventure across Canada? Only the Metal Cowboy, of course. Beth Biagini Kurmaskie, the woman behind the manchild, has finally saddled up on her own volition, if only to bring a bit of parental supervision to the mix. She struggles a bit at first, while celebrating summer, speed, the simple pleasures of a road trip powered by one’s own muscles, and family—what it means to be part of one stripped of the “comforts and noise” of the modern world, riding sixteen feet of bicyle train. With three sons aboard, one celebrating his first birthday, a nursing mother finds her inner Xena Warrior Cyclist and all the reasons why she's stayed married to a whirling dervish of a husband. And Beth’s progression from newbie cyclist to totally ripped veteran will be an inspiration to anyone considering taking to the road on a bike. Mud, Sweat, and Gears brings together absurd and sublime moments, introduces an American family to the wilds of Canada, uncovers choice characters (man and animal), and finds all the humor and pathos a Metal Cowboy adventure is famous for. If Momentum Is Your Friend was about fathers, sons, and hometown heroes, Mud, Sweat, and Gears is about mothers, wives, family, and the glue that holds the world together. With a extra twist: revealing and outrageous footnotes from Beth throughout, filling in the backstories to many previous Metal Cowboy tales and seventeen years of marriage.

Biking from Oregon to Maine is no small feat, especially for two newly retired women who carry everything they need for three months, powered only by the strength of their legs and a desire for adventure. Alice Honeywell and Bobbi Montgomery invite readers to follow their ride by bicycle across the United States, as they face scorching sun, driving rain, buffeting winds, equipment failures, killer hills, wild fires, and even a plague of grasshoppers. As Alice and Bobbi pedal along their 3,600-mile journey, they test and deepen their friendship, defy their aches and pains, experience the vast and varied beauties of their country, and discover the challenges and satisfaction of a scaled-down lifestyle. And, they encounter unfailing generosity from people they meet—from the prayers of a North Dakota woman for their safekeeping, to the offer of a house in Michigan, to invitations for dinner and a place to sleep at stops all along the way. And there are incidents to laugh over, too, such as the bewildered woman who asked them, “Well, but where do you pack your dresses?” Ride along with Alice and Bobbi as they embrace retirement with gusto and live their dream.
