Summary
<P style=""MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"" class=MsoNormal>In <I>The</I> <I>Road Less Taken</I>, Kathryn Bertine takes readers through her journey of striving to become a professional cyclist in her mid-30s. Her essays explore the twists and turns on life's unexpected roads via bicycle, but also the larger meaning of what it means to heed one's inner compass and search for a personal true north. With her signature wit and humor Bertine's essays travel far beyond the bike lane, resonating with anyone who has ever dared to try and turn their dreams into a reality
