About this product
- DescriptionIn June 2008 Ben Cunningham and five friends, average age twenty-two, set out to cycle the Pan-American Highway from Prudhoe Bay, the rthernmost point of Alaska, to Ushuaia in Argentina, the most southerly city in the world. The Pan-American Highway is believed to be the world's longest continuous land route. It measures 25,000 kilometres and passes through fourteen different countries and two continents. From the vast mosquito-ridden bear country of Alaska and rthern Canada to the densely populated cities of Los Angeles and Lima, the highway takes Ben and his friends from hot to cold, from forest to desert, English to Spanish and everything in between. From encounters with police and mosquitoes to sleeping rough, from cycling in torrential rain to braving the extreme heat of the desert, this is an inspirational tale of adventure and endurance, of what can happen when you get on your bike.
