The Longest Road PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Longest Road free pdf In June 2008 Ben Cunningham and five friends, average age 22, set out to cycle from Alaska to Argentina. The Pan American Highway, the world's longest continuous land route, extends for 25,000 kilometres through 14 different countries and two continents. The road runs from the vast mosquito-ridden bear country of Alaska and northern Canada to the densely populated cities of Los Angeles and Lima. It moves from hot to cold, from forest to desert, English to Spanish and everything in between. Crossing the border into Mexico means leaving security and affluence for poverty and danger. Along the way the kindness of strangers, run-ins with the law, and sometimes gangsters, were encountered. In Ireland, the expedition generated national interest, aiming to complete the journey in nine months and raise money for charity. It was the first Irish attempt at a cycling challenge of this length and duration. The task was as simple as it is brutal. This is an inspirational tale of adventure and endurance, of what can happen when you get on your bike, of getting to where you want to be.
