When life handed Jamie Bianchini several bowls of lemons, he sought comfort where he always found it—on his bicycle. In April, 2002 Jamie set off on a bicycle ride around the world on a tandem. Riding solo. As he made this incredible journey, Jamie invited strangers to join him on the rear seat of the tandem.
After eight years, 81 countries and over 1000 riding companions, Jamie returned home and put his Peace Pedalers expedition to paper in A Bicycle Built for Two Billion. Now he shares his intercultural adventure through a captivating multimedia slideshow featuring stunning photos, videos, music and stories.
