In June and July 2014, Frans Bevers cycled with an international group from San Francisco, California to Portsmouth, North Hampshire: 6231 km in 47 days through 13 states. During this journey through the United States of America he kept a detailed diary, including notes about the landscape, the cities, the music, the people and his cycling adventure. Alongside day-to-day descriptions of his experiences, this publication presents numerous photos taken during the journey. Cycling through impressive landscapes such as the Bonneville Salt Flats, the Nevada desert, Monarch Pass at an altitude of 3448m in the Rocky Mountains, the Black Canyon in Colorado, along the Mississippi, Lake Erie and over the ‘rollers’ of Missouri. And the hundreds of kilometres cycling past soy and cornfields and the pitiful ‘feed farms’ in Kansas are also included.
