Videos of the book tour

If you could do anything, what would you do?

Here are a few videos I made during my bicycling book tour.

The first is a video documentary I made while circumnavigating North America on a bicycle asking people a seemingly simple question: “If you could do anything, what would you do?” This segment features footage from Santa Barbara to San Francisco, California.

I meant to do a whole series but it soon became apparent what the ideal answer is. Ask yourself: “If you could do anything, what would you do?” And then watch the video to find out the general answer that applies to everyone.

Last summer I rode a bicycle from Minneapolis, MN to Milwaukee, WI. I call it the coast-to-coast tour, from the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan. You can cycle almost the whole way on bicycle trails. One of the best sections here, and the world, is the Elroy-Sparta Trail. Home of the first rails-to-trails project and some scary tunnels. Here are a few highlights. I would have done a lot more filming, but forgot to bring a tripod. Wish I would have done this for my world bike tour.

My debut video as a backup dancer in a Bollywood blockbuster movie. This is the catchy song "Mohabbat Hai Mirchi" from the movie "Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne."
My award arrived in the mail for the anniversary edition of Falling Uphill. Yay! You could call this my coming of age journey. The sequel is planned for 2037. I imagine I'll have some interesting perspective as I do it all again. Well... maybe not the whole world via bicycle. Thank you Next Generation Indie Book Awards
