Tracy Herbert's epic solo 3,527-mile bicycle ride across the United States




    RIDE for HOPE tells the story of how Tracy Herbert beat all the odds and overcame every obstacle that stood in her way as she completed her solo 3,527-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to New York City. What do you do when you are faced with the reality of living with an illness that could end your life prematurely? How do you face that and, more importantly, how does it define you? 

    In this book Tracy chronicles every day of her amazing ride with all the ups and downs (literally and figuratively). One reader told her "I felt like I was right there riding with you each day."
