Jamie BianchiniJamie Bianchini

After a less than ideal childhood Jamie was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” in High School. He then went on to graduate college with a Best Business Plan award from USC’s world renowned Entrepreneur Program in 1995. Even with what appeared to be great potential for success, Jamie drove himself to hitting rock bottom in his late 20’s. He fell into the trap of thinking that life was all about him, getting what he wanted at any cost, and getting it as fast as possible.
It was not until he lost it all – money, love, relationships, and health – that he realized there had to be more to life. Since then, he’s been on a journey to discover humility, foster compassion, find his purpose and live authentically. He’s fallen on his face more times than most in the process, but each time he gets back up, and he seems just a bit wiser for it.
Jamie lives with his wife and two children in Santa Cruz, California. For the past four years they have been working together to prepare and share the stories of this journey with the world.

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

Total Adventure “Even though I already had a connection to this book because I had met Jaimie and Garryck in Japan, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the writing and story layout was. I read 100 pages the first day, simply because I couldn’t put it down! Both then and now, Jaimie has reminded

Very pleasantly surprised with this book! Bianchini takes a big bite outta life in this adventure (and sometimes pays the price). His honesty is well, honest and his heart seems to be fixed in just the right place. This is definitely ‘feel good’ terrain but with a goal in mind. I highly recommend “A Bicycle
