Roll Around Heaven All Day
By: Daybreak Publishing
Middle-aged, overweight and mounted on an old bicycle, the author rides across America with a zestful appreciation for the land and the people who frequent its back roads and inhabit its small towns. With a gift for seeing both the ridiculous and the profound in everyday life, Stan uses his storytellers skills to narrate this trip of a lifetime.
A must-read for a rider.

Stan Purdum may not be John Grisham, but he doesn't have to be. His book has become a perennial summertime read; for those days when I can't ride as much as I'd like, I can enjoy the experiences he had.

Good, Not Great

This book is a pleasant and quick read. Unfortunately, it lacks depth. It fails to explore the author's apparent emotional need to make the journey. It fails to be a descriptive account of the geography the author traversed. It fails to 'flesh out' the apparently interesting characters the author encountered in his travels. Plus, it focused too much on the medical and physical problems of his family.
Being middle aged, and considering taking an extended journey myself, I was eager to read this book. I read it in a day, and was sorely disappointed. Frankly, this man sounds like too much of a whiner for me to want to travel with!
A Real Cyclist's Story
by: on: 11-Mar 2002
The author rode his bike across the country in three stages because he didn't have the luxury of enough time to do it all at once. He's very candid about his misconceptions and the adjustments he makes. As I read this book, which I greatly enjoyed, I just knew the author had to be a midwesterner, as I am. It's not a flashy story, and nothing terribly dramatic happened, but at least I was left with the feeling that I would like to go with Mr. Purdum on an extended bike trip sometime. Highly recommended.
