The Kickstand Chronicles encompass 62 chapters of the wildest, funniest, craziest, and most incredible moments of Wooldridge’s 45 years traveling across six continents-including Antarctica. Wooldridge brings you unique as well as unforgettable characters he met along the way. Have you ever met a man walking across America on his hands? You will meet him in this book. Have you ever been arrested for having “too much fun”? Get ready to be caught! Have you been face-to-face with an Alaskan grizzly bear? You may not recover from that encounter.
You will find yourself laughing, crying, and pondering your own life. Not only that, you will find a certain physical, spiritual and mental energy in all of his adventures. Quite literally, he puts you in the saddle as you ride along with him. As you grind up mountain passes, sweat in 120 degrees of desert heat, or ride through snowstorms, you’ll feel the true grit of adventure and make it yours.
He barely lived through some of the most thrilling, astounding, stupefying, crazy, serendipitous, frightening, sublime, and hysterical moments ever recorded on the written page.
The real danger in reading Wooldridge’s book is that you will have “Been There, Done That” with none of the sweat and tears shed by the cyclist in his travels. For the non-bicycling reader……have fun with his stories and read dangerously! You won’t be able to put this book down!
Finally, you have thought about it, dreamed about it, wanted it, your entire life. But the job, house, kids, wife, and life came first. OK! But right in front of you is this book of the journey of your dreams. Read it and feel the chain tighten on the freewheel as you climb a mighty mountain pass or ride into a howling rainstorm. You can even smell the campfire burning by a quiet lake somewhere in the world.
