About the Book
A bicycle journey in March 2010 across America of about 3,500 miles which took my friend - Mick Sheahan - and I 70 days to complete.
Our route was Washington DC to Seattle.
The book includes photographs, maps, my daily emails and a blog written by my friend.
There is another book, Across America by Bike, that is a short paperback giving more information about routes but less detail on the daily journey
