Going Somewhere: A Bicycle Journey Across AmericaGoing Somewhere: A Bicycle Journey Across America by Brian Benson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Brian and Rachel set off on bikes across the country, testing their strength and relationship during the thrilling and grueling days in the saddle. Written from Brian’s point of view, he spends a lot of time being apologetic for his white maleness and inspecting his interactions with Rachel. I loved the descriptions of the ride and both the good and bad feelings (physical and emotional) that went with it. However, Brian’s voice got a little whiny at times and I often wished that Rachel was the voice of the story.
