Are you just an ordinary person who has always dreamed of doing something extraordinary? Then this is the book for you. Russell Mendivil is a middle-aged dad, gardener and couch potato with a history of heart attacks who, after a medical scare with his oldest daughter, decides to ride his bike 585 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to help raise awareness and money for AIDS services. Despite the many physical and emotional struggles Russ faces in preparation for the ride, he remains inspired by the amazing people he meets along the way. This very witty yet touching story serves to prove that if he can do it, so can you.
