When Doug Bahniuk is riding on the road and a fancy car passes him, he thinks, “Poor guy can’t afford a nice bicycle.” That’s how much he loves riding his bicycle on the road—something he’s done across Alaska twice, across South Korea, and across Oregon three times. In this memoir, he celebrates his love for riding and bicycles, which gave him the freedom to ride to the park and hang out with his friends as a child and the ability to dream as an adult. He focuses on a ride he began planning in spring 2007 from Boise, Idaho, to Denver, Colorado—one that his doctor did not want him to take alone. That’s because Bahniuk suffers from Parkinson’s disease, which makes it difficult to talk, walk, eat, and control his fine motor skills. But his philosophy about Parkinson’s has always been simple: Screw it, because he can ride a bicycle! Join the author as he conquers his fears, travels vast distances, and sees the impossible on The White Line to Denver.
