Mid-life Crisis on Wheels
a bicycle journey around the world
Cutting-edge computer systems designer. Crisis project manager. Consultant to the Fortune 100. Utter workaholic.
Before he became a writer, M.L. “Matt” Buchman had dreamed of traveling the world by sailboat or small plane. Not once did he think about doing it by bicycle — not until he lost everything: career, house he’d been remodeling for the family he never had time to find, sense of self, all of it.
Broke and burned out at thirty-five, he sold everything, climbed on his bicycle Junior, and together they headed out on a journey of unknown duration.
His one guide? Following the setting sun west.
11,000 miles through eighteen countries. A voyage of adventure, discovery, and rebuilding a life. But mostly? A journey of discovering hope and the unexpected possibilities of the future.
