This Road I Ride
My Incredible Journey from Novice to Fastest Woman to Cycle the Globe
By: Juliana Buhring
A story of endurance and stamina, and the will power it takes to set a cycling world record against all odds
In December 2012, Juliana Buhring became the first woman to circumnavigate the world by bicycle. With only a few months of training and little sponsorship, support or money she left from Naples on 23 July 2012 to cycle the world.
Raised in a religious cult as a child, Juliana finally broke away as a young adult and found her soul mate - an explorer seeking the source of unmapped rivers in Africa. When he was killed by a crocodile, her world went dark. To escape her grief, she decided to set herself a challenge. Having never seriously ridden a bike, she set out to ride around the world.
18,000 miles, 152 days, 4 continents, 19 countries, 29 punctures, 6 big mountains, 1 desert and a cyclone later, she made it back just days before Christmas with a Guinness World Record. Empowering, inspiring, often humorous, THIS ROAD I RIDE is testimony to the power of sheer will to overcome any obstacle.
Discover a true story of adventure, blood, sweat and gears.
