 About the Book 

After years of climbing corporate ladders, how many people fantasize about chucking it all, selling everything they own and embarking on an adventure of a lifetime -- in this case, a 10,000-kilometer bicycle trip through ten countries of Europe.MoreAfter years of climbing corporate ladders, how many people fantasize about chucking it all, selling everything they own and embarking on an adventure of a lifetime -- in this case, a 10,000-kilometer bicycle trip through ten countries of Europe. Unable to speak any language but their own, these newly-married forty-year-olds set out with two hundred pounds of equipment strapped to two mountain bikes and a ten-dollar-a-day budget. For eight months they sleep in forests and fields, bathe and wash clothes in rivers, and cook on a one-burner camp stove. Learning to communicate in seven languages, they stay with a new family each night, and on a bicycle-wide ribbon of Europe thousands of miles long, they discover that human kindness has no borders. Shifting Gears is the true story of what its really like to live your dream.
