What a ride Jamie and Family in front of Boxy Bikes in Ithaca, New York

What a ride! Jamie and Family with Laurence in front of Boxy Bikes in Ithaca, New York


We had no idea how hard this was going to be, and how AWESOME this was going to be! Living in a travel trailer for months at a time (Thank You Heartland RV!) with our two small children while running a business and staying sane…whew! We could not do it without the love and support of so many people. BIG THANKS to everyone who has helped us along on our journey!

Book Reviews

“Bianchini’s A Bicycle Built for Two Billion is not about the bike. It’s a life odyssey of epic proportions. Few of us live from the heart. Jamie reminds us how.”   –– Les Stroud (Survivorman)

Once I started reading I just couldn’t put it down. The story ended up being so much more than I had expected…more engaging, more unpredictable, more emotional. Jamie shares his own life journey even as he shares a perspective of the world few of us get to see in any country let alone many across

As the World Turns “A great ride and finding time to stop and smell the flowers along the way… cultural exposures, meeting people…ups and down of daily life… Ran into these adventurers in Paraguay on the “long bike . Nice to read about their entire exploits… easy reading…”
