    A few weeks ago I participated a memorial bike ride for Ryan Correy, as he had led some fun night rides in Burlington a few years ago At that time, I had no idea how accomplished and driven he was and what he had achieved a 25000 km trip from the top of Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, a 12 day ride across the US with incredibly little sleep or rest , 4500 km mountain bike trip from Canada to Mexico on remote mountain trails, and a 6 day attempt to break a stationary bike record among many others A few weeks ago I participated a memorial bike ride for Ryan Correy, as he had led some fun night rides in Burlington a few years ago At that time, I had no idea how accomplished and driven he was and what he had achieved a 25000 km trip from the top of Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, a 12 day ride across the US with incredibly little sleep or rest , 4500 km mountain bike trip from Canada to Mexico on remote mountain trails, and a 6 day attempt to break a stationary bike record among many others It all started at the age of 13 when his father took him on a bike ride across Canada The Ryan that I knew just through a couple of bike trips came out in the book humble and keen to share his love of cycling The first, longest trip broke a World Record but he destroyed the proof and didn t apply for the record because he had ridden in support of Make a Wish and had promised a young boy dying of brain cancer that he would complete the trip for him, and that was what was important in the end.For anyone who bikes or who works hard to enjoy their passion and adventures, I highly recommend this book It s an amazing insight into how hard a person can push themselves physically and mentally in support of a higher goal outside of themselves I was very sad to hear that Ryan had lost his own fight with cancer in April

    Starting with a cross country trip undertaken with his father at age 13, Ryan Correy details the following decade and a half of various endurance pursuits Despite the number of miles pedaled, self awareness seems to have largely passed Correy by While he writes about wanting to ride with purpose, and does make attempts to raise money for various causes with minimal success , his primary achievement seems to be in finding others to fund his adventures Long suffering parents are acknowledged, Starting with a cross country trip undertaken with his father at age 13, Ryan Correy details the following decade and a half of various endurance pursuits Despite the number of miles pedaled, self awareness seems to have largely passed Correy by While he writes about wanting to ride with purpose, and does make attempts to raise money for various causes with minimal success , his primary achievement seems to be in finding others to fund his adventures Long suffering parents are acknowledged, albeit with resignation and a lack of appreciation For me, Correy comes off as a spoiled rich kid, riding through life listening to Coldplay with a monumental sense of entitlement

    I loved this book as I do many adventure books This young man never gave up and I admired his courage to ride into the unknown on his bike I started reading this after Ryan author was diagnosed with cancer He didn t survive long and after his death I had to pause reading the book I recently finished it and enjoyed it so much Rest In Peace Ryan.

    Would not recommend Not overly inspiring, he just comes off as arrogant and selfish.

    An auto biography by a young man who has accomplished and attempted some impressive endurance oriented athletic events Interesting reading about his background and somewhat clumsy attempts to explain his motivations Yet it all comes across as a story about an athletically gifted fellow who is enormously self centred and simply a spoiled rich kid on permanent holiday.
