Riding a bike across America

Paul Stutzman’s book, “Biking Across America,” is an easy read. Descriptions of the terrain, vegetation, and battles against loneliness keeps my reading going at a smooth pace.

Stutzman manages to throw in a cheer for God every now and then.His philosophies surrounding God might not make sense to me every now and then, however, I can easily pass by them and keep reading. It’s worth it because the book shows courage.

Of course, I wonder how Stutzman could afford to take time off from work and bike across America while paying for hotels and food. But, things are possible when the mind decides to accomplish a goal. I read where its estimated that between 350 and 500 people bike across America each year.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “The path of divine Science is less difficult to follow when the high goal is always before the thoughts. This is in contrast to counting every single little footstep while endeavoring to reach the better goal. When the destination is desirable, expectation speeds our progress. The struggle for Truth makes one strong instead of weak, restful instead of weary.”
