Nine months later, Kristine was among the 730 cyclists amassed at the foot of the Seattle Space Needle to embark on the journey of a lifetime and the largest cross-country bike event in U.S. history. Your Mileage May Vary is this novice cyclists account of a summer spent crossing a continentsometimes on a bike, sometimes on foot, and sometimes in a support vehiclein search of an experience that would teach her something valuable about herself, her purpose, and her path forward. Filled with details of the towns, prairies, and mountain ridges these cyclists encountered, Your Mileage May Vary is more than just a travelogue. It is an honest, humorous, and sometimes frustrating meditation on the struggle for self-definition and the pursuit of a meaningful life.
