Tom Sweeney was thirty-eight years old when he announced his ridiculous plan to ride his bicycle around the world. He had everything an adult is supposed to want: a good job, an amazing wife, a nice home. But he felt like something was missing, like the humdrum of impending middle age wasn't living up to its promises of fulfillment.

Produktbeschreibung
Tom Sweeney was thirty-eight years old when he announced his ridiculous plan to ride his bicycle around the world. He had everything an adult is supposed to want: a good job, an amazing wife, a nice home. But he felt like something was missing, like the humdrum of impending middle age wasn't living up to its promises of fulfillment.

Over the course of four summers, Sweeney pedaled from Lisbon, Portugal, to Shanghai, China, crossing twenty-two countries and amassing a lifetime of fascinating stories. His memoir, however, is hardly an ordinary travelogue. It is grounded in Sweeney's everyday life as a fifth-grade teacher in Colorado. Blending humble honesty and subtle humor, Sweeney explores themes of loneliness, perseverance, and the repercussions that come with every choice we make.

Real life, it turns out, doesn't stop moving just because we embark on some grandiose quest. Sometimes, the answers we're seeking show up in the most unexpected and ordinary ways.

Autorenporträt
Originally from Michigan, Tom Sweeney has been looking for that something hiding around the bend in every corner his whole life. He has traveled to over forty countries, including a study abroad program in England, graduate research in Belize, volunteer work at a nature preserve in Guatemala, and a two year service in Peace Corps Mongolia.

An avid cyclist since he was old enough to pedal, Sweeney started racing road bikes when he was fifteen. He completed his first extended bicycle tour around Colorado in 2012.

He lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife Kendra and their dog, Cooper. He has taught fifth grade for twelve years. His favorite thing about fifth-graders is their sense of humor, natural curiosity and unique way of looking at the world - a refreshing break from the realities of adulthood.

While he has written more academic papers than he can count, this is his first book.

Tom Sweeney is a middle class, middle-aged introvert and weight-loss survivor.
