This is the true story of a fifty-year-old spinster schoolteacher who transformed her life, her legs and her lungs when she said yes to a surprising late romance and began an amazing twelve year series of two-wheeled journeys through five continents. Irene Shepard and her husband Burley, in tandem, plan their routes and itineraries, negotiate local laws and customs, and travel through fascinating landscapes. When things don’t go as planned, they rely on their collective wits, their patience, and the whims of fortune. Follow them up steep escarpments in Africa, into serendipitous encounters in South America and as they are tracked by military police in Egypt. As you read this book you will discover how biking gives a far more intimate perspective than travel in a car, bus or train, and your appetite will be whetted for travels of your own.

About the Author:

Irene lives happily in Denver, Colorado with her husband Burley. She keeps herself busy leading tours of the Denver Botanic Gardens, walking and biking in the neighbourhood and remembering the twelve adventurous years spent travelling on a tandem with Burley in different parts of the world. She taught high school biology for thirty years. Born in what was Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, seventy three years ago she speaks with a funny accent which is not English.
