Paperback - The University of Gravel Roads - Global Lessons from a four-year motorcycle adventure
The University of Gravel Roads: Global Lessons from a Four-Year Motorcycle Adventure. Written and narrated by Rene Cormier, founder of Renedian Adventures.
Pull up a chair around the fire and settle in to listen to a mesmerizing tale as Rene Cormier brings you along on his round-the-world motorcycle trip. Never one to get bogged down in excessive details, he does it the old-fashioned way: no sponsors, no support vehicles, and no idea about what he is going to learn along the way.
Published in 2011, UGR highlights Rene’s four-year solo-motorcycle journey that took him around the world.
At the end of a great day of riding and exploring, have you ever wanted nothing more than to fall asleep, exhausted from new experiences, only to wake up the next day and do it all again? And again? And again?
Join the adventure as 33-year-old Rene Cormier politely removes himself from the working world that surrounds him and cashes in what few possessions he has to finance a three-yearlong motorcycle journey around the world. Never one to let excessive planning get in the way of a good ride, Rene runs out of money half way through the tour and ultimately takes five years to cover his 41-country, 154,000-kilometre (95,000-mile) route.
Written with equal measure of cultural insight and travel logistics, this light travelogue brings you alongside Rene as he pulls off the ride of a lifetime, doing it the old-fashioned way; no sponsors, no support vehicles, and no idea about what he is going to learn along the way.
