About The Book
"What an achievement this book is! This is a truly well-written story and one of the best memoirs I have read. Christopher Briscoe takes his readers on a once-in-a-lifetime bicycle journey through the heart of 1970s America. Shifting Gears is as sharp-eyed, intuitive, and captivating as Cheryl Strayed's Wild."
