Publisher's Description

After Paul Stutzman finished hiking the Appalachian Trail, he found himself longing for another challenge, another adventure. Trading his hiking boots for a bicycle, Paul set off to discover more of America. Starting at Neah Bay, Washington, and ending at Key West, Florida, Paul traversed the 5,000-mile distance between the two farthest points in the contiguous United States. Along the way he encountered nearly every kind of terrain and weather the country had to offer--as well as hundreds of fascinating people whose stories readers will love. Through cold and heat, loneliness and exhaustion, abundance and kindness, Paul pedaled on. His reward--and the readers'--is a glimpse of a noble yet humble America that still exists and inspires.

Anyone who longs for adventure, who loves travel and stories of travel, and who loves this place called America will enjoy this book.

    Great book about a cross country bike trip

    The author told his story in such a way that you felt you were riding along with him----even if you are nothing more than a casual cyclist. The times that he weaves the Gospel message into his story are creative and shared from the heart. I bought a copy of the book for my son, who is a serious bike enthusiast!

    In his first book, Hiking Through, Paul Stutzman relates his adventures hiking the Appalachian Trail after the death of his wife. After this accomplishment, he decided to ride his bicycle across America.

    His trip started at Neah Bay, Washington. His destination was Key West, Florida5,000 miles away. For most of the trip, he rode alone. Occasionally, he would meet other cyclists and enjoyed riding with them. Riding alone in the dark of night gave him a feeling of sadness and loneliness. When daylight broke, he saw the beautiful scenery and realized most of his worries never materialized.

    Along the way, he received assistance from strangers. Sometimes he was the one who helped someone else in need. He trusted God to keep him safe as he traveled through 13 states. He said that anyone who thinks following God is boring and restrictive is missing out. Life is a great adventure.

    I'm not a bicyclist, so I wasn't sure if this book would be interesting to me, but I really enjoyed reading of his adventures, his thoughts, and his interactions with all the people he met.

    From the Back Cover: Discover the heart of America on this life-changing, cross-country bike adventure

    After Paul Stutzman finished hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, he found himself longing for another challenge. Trading his hiking boots for a bicycle, Paul set off to discover more of America.

    Starting at Neah Bay, Washington, and ending at Key West, Florida, Paul traversed the five-thousand-mile distance between the two farthest points in the contiguous United States. Along the way he encountered nearly every kind of terrain and weather the country had to offer-as well as hundreds of fascinating people who represent the challenges and triumphs of the entire country. Through cold and heat, loneliness and exhaustion, abundance and kindness, Paul pedaled on. His reward-and yours-is a glimpse of an amazing country that inspires us all.

    If you long for adventure, love to meet new people, and love this place called America, get ready for the ride of your life.

    "Biking Across America" is an interesting book. When my wife and I left the East Coast to move to the West Coast we made the journey by car. Over the course of our trip we saw quite a few states and cities and met a lot of really interesting people. This is somewhat similar to what Mr. Stutzman experienced though his was better, we made the trip by car, he made his by bicycle. "Biking Across America" is a memoir, an account of that journey. Want to know what our Country is like? This book is for you. Want to draw close to God? So did Mr. Stutzman and this book chronicles how he did it.
