Overview

An intriguing snapshot of true Americana on a forgotten historic highway, as seen through the eyes of a foreign cyclist 

 "I hate marathons. Hate running. An hour before the start, I received a text. Instead of 'Good luck,' it was 'We're finished.' So, I went to a bar next to the subway on 96th. Had a few bourbons with some other mope. Then I got on a bike and took off down the old Lincoln Highway." Forget Route 66. This is the original cross-country highway that takes you through REAL America, the first to cross all of the US from the Big Apple to the City on the Bay. This is THE road trip. On a 750cc bike.

Reviews

"Like a Gallic Jim Jarmusch road movie (though shorter), this slim motorcycle diary has its moments." —Publishers Weekly
