A Great Read!
As a 59 year old cyclist whose bike tours are limited to the States I found this book to be very good. It took me places I will never go myself with a narrative style that made me feel as though I was with Tim and Cindie Travis. I greatly admire these two, the places they pass through in Mexico, and Central America often put them at risk but the rewards those places provided in terms of the scenery and people they met makes it all worthwhile for them and for their readers.

A wonderful read
You do Not have to be a cyclist to enjoy this fantastic adventure. I Can't wait for their next addition. It is very uplifing and shows many times the good in our species.

Wow - what an exciting read! I really don't understand all the people here who are complaining about the writing style. They're missing the point entirely. These are *cyclists*, not English professors. The sheer amount of adventure in this book more than makes up for any grammar faux pas. The way Tim relates the stories makes you feel like you are right there in the middle of it all. Some of the things they experienced are just incredible. If you like adventure, get this book - you won't regret it!

An excellent adventure
I have read numerous books on cycling adventures but The Road that has no End is the single best book combining a practical guide for cyclists and a story of adventure for all readers. Tim provides in-depth discussions of why they are traveling and how they changed their "ordinary" lives in a practical and easy to read manner. The struggles and hardships combine with the simple joys they experience on a daily basis. Cyclists can easily relate to the frustrations of biking against a strong headwind or up long mountains and at the same time, share the simple pleasures of watching a sun set or trying to communicate in a strange language. This book is for everyone with any interest in adventure and as an avid reader of these books, I highly recommend it without any reservation. My only disappointment came when I finished it and have to wait until his next book comes out.

The is a superb travelogue about a couple who sold up everything to travel around the world. The book shows all the highs and lows and dangers of their (still ongoing) trip on two wheels. With some great photos too. This book is up there with the best of them-including the excellent "Miles From Nowhere" by Barbara Savage. My only gripe is that I have to wait until the second installment of this mindblowing and thought provoking trip. A truly great piece of work.
I have used several brands of bicycle panniers and
highly recommend Ortlieb.
