    Description

    Raised in the extreme religious cult called the Children of God, Juliana Buhring was frequently punished for being a rebel and finally broke away. Her soul mate was an explorer seeking the source of unmapped rivers in Africa. When he was killed by a crocodile, her world went dark.

    To escape paralyzing grief, Buhring set herself a goal. Never having seriously ridden a bike, she set out to ride one around the world. Her timing required going the wrong way, against the Earth's rotation and most winds. Supported by a devoted Italian friend, random "road angels", and other ex-cult kids around the world, she traversed small-town and big-mountain America, Australian desert expanses, South Asian rainforests and villages, and Turkish plains, ultimately beating the previous men's record and becoming the fastest woman to cycle the world.

    Empowering, inspiring, and often humorous, This Road I Ride is testimony to the power of sheer will to overcome any obstacle.

    She is amazing

    I loved the story. I love the author. The voice actor did a lot of accents. Badly. A woman traveling around the world runs into a lot of different languages, as you can imagine. Nonetheless, totally worth it.

    Will make you dust off your bike

    I have ridden for years but the idea of riding around the world sounds daunting. Juliana, a not a cyclist decides after a personal upheaval it is doable. She was right. funny, raw and insightful I would recommend this book to anyone who dreams of adventure.

    incredible story...

    I was only disappointed because the pace of the reading was so fast that it left no room for distraction. Honestly, audio books need to be read at a pace that allows the listener time to listen..

    Inspired to Ride got me here, glad it did.

    Great story. I initially saw Juliana on a favorite Netflix documentary of mine, and in looking into the backstory of the featured endurance athletes I found mention of this book.

    Good stuff, relatable perspective, looking forward to more from her.

    Moving Account of an Epic Ride

    Juliana Buhring sets a Guiness Book record for a woman cycling around the world. She is inspired to do so stemming from personal loss, tests herself, and triumphs.

    I have read several accounts of long cycle tours. All of them were enjoyable, but this story stands out. First, because it condenses the journey into an account that is never tedious or boring for someone not already enamored of endurance cycling. Second, it is accessible to anyone as a great human interest story irrespective of their interest in the sport of cycling.

    Juliana had a remarkably difficult childhood recounted in a second, earlier, book -- Not Without My Sister. She weaves part of that story into this account as she meets people and places connected with her past. We are left to wonder -- as likely does she -- whether it is the experience gained in survival or the innate qualities of the person who survived that is responsible for succeeding in this journey. Whichever is true, this is a riveting account from inside Juliana's mind as she circles the world.
