Changing Gears: A Family Odyssey To The End Of The World

Changing Gears is an emotionally inspiring account of one family’s journey from the top of the world to the end. Already seasoned bike travelers, Sathre-Vogel and her husband, John, travel with their ten year old twins through the stark, cold tundra, through dry desert winds, and through extreme humidity in the tropics. With photos and journal entries from her boys, the journey is a lesson in perseverance, even in the bleakest moments. I found this an inspiring story and also confirmed my suspicions that bike touring is not for me. While I love discovering cities on two wheels, I also enjoy coming home to a hot shower and a warm bed!
