Biographical note:

Brian Benson has worked as a magazine editor, Spanish teacher, landscaper, jazz musician, and volunteer coordinator at a bicycle-based nonprofit. He (mostly) lives in Portland.

Main description:

Brian Benson has a million life-plans but no sense of direction. So when he meets and falls for Rachel, he's ready to go wherever she'll take him. In a whirlwind of new love, they embark on a bicycle trip from northern Wisconsin to western Oregon. As the pair progress through stunning landscapes, they contend with merciless winds, vivid characters, broken bikes and bodies—and the looming question of what comes next. 
 
Funny, reflective, and candid, Going Somewhere invites bike enthusiasts, twenty-somethings, and armchair travelers alike to join Brian as he learns, mile by mile, how to move forward. 

Review quote:

"Brian Benson’s memoir about riding from the hinterlands of Wisconsin to Portland, Oregon on his bicycle is as poignant as it is gripping, as hilarious as it is wise. OUTSIDE THE MILE is a tender, sexy, take-it-with-you-everywhere-you-go-until-you’ve-read-the-last-page beauty of a book.” –Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
