Publisher's Summary

Shifting into High Gear charts the course of Kyle Bryant's transformation as he journeys on a recumbent tricycle across the United States in the throes of Friedreich's ataxia, a life-shortening and disabling disease. Full of humor and reflection, it's a heroic journey of a man driven to reframe the language of disease through action and service.

As you travel with Kyle during two cross-country bike rides through the American West, Texas, the Southern States, and finally to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the grueling rides become a compelling backdrop for a series of lessons and ruminations which embrace an alternative worldview and provide practical solutions to everyday problems. 

A thrilling adventure story, yes, Shifting into High Gear is also ultimately about helping listeners reinterpret the conditions of their lives and learning how positive thinking, purposeful connection, and deliberate actions can help anyone reach beyond their limits and live a bolder and bigger life no matter what the circumstance.

Great Book! 6 out of 5!

I found this to be inspirational, informative and occasionally humorous. Brilliantly written. Really made me feel like I was in the space and time. Great personal strength in the face of enormous adversity. A definite must-read.
