Publisher's Summary

The moment the car hit her, everything changed for Charlotte Roach. Out on a training ride with other Olympic hopefuls, elite athletes all of them, Charlotte was just 21 years old, with the dream of making the GB triathlon team. Now, as she lay on the tarmac with a broken back, waiting for the air ambulance, she was drifting in and out of consciousness, fighting for her life.

Nearly two years later, Charlotte sat on her bike in China, waiting for the sun to rise. Ahead of her was a journey that would span 10,000 kilometers. Her plan was as simple as it was daunting: cycle from Beijing to London in a roughly straight line over six long, arduous months.

A Long Ride Home interweaves the story of Charlotte's recovery with the bike ride in all its triumph and challenge. It is a story of the dedication it takes to follow a dream and the depths of perseverance needed when that dream is broken by misfortune. Most of all it is the story of a woman and her bike and of the healing and redemption found on two wheels.
