Things weren’t working out for Juliana Buhring. There had been a series of tragedies in her personal life. So she decided to do something about it. She decided she was going to cycle around the world.
Juliana had little experience as a cyclist. She had no experience as an endurance athlete. She trained for a bit and then figured, "To hell with it, I’ll learn on the job".
With woefully insufficient funds, she got on her bike and stated pedaling. Fewer than 160 days later, she was back home in Naples. Only now she had the Guinness World Record as the fastest woman to circumnavigate the globe under her belt.
In the course of her adventures, she had to survive frostbite, magpie attacks, dog attacks, intense physical hardship and, most scary of all, the unknown.
This is her amazing story. This Road I Ride by Juliana Buhring is published by Little Brown.
