A good book to read. It gives you a lot to think about as your progress through the book. ( )

In Wheels of Wisdom: Life Lessons for the Restless Spirit, Tim and Debby Bishop share their lessons learned during their three tours which took them along over 10,000 miles across the States. Throughout their bicycle tours they blogged about their adventures and lessons. A collection of 52 lessons now fill their latest book. Think of enjoying every small blessing, overcoming obstacles, the importance of rest, seeing miracles happen, and the countless 'coincidental' meetings with people. Each lesson is introduced by a headline, a lively description of the events leading up to understanding this lesson, one or more pictures shot by the couple, a verse quoted from the Bible, and a couple of questions to reflect upon.
The honesty and personal stories of mechanical damage, physical challenges, and mental barriers gives the couple sufficient credibility to relate to. Their tour as newlyweds from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean in 2010 - I remembered many stories from Two Are Better: Midlife Newlyweds Bicycle Coast to Coast -, the Mom-to-Mom tour from North to South along the Atlantic Ocean in 2012, and another coast-to-coast fundraising HopeLine Tour in 2014, are inspiring, confronting, and uplifting.
We're all travelers on a life journey and need help every now and then. Learn from this couple while you're dreaming of new adventures, pondering about past travels, and live in the here and now. ( )

Impressively well written, organized and presented, "Wheels of Wisdom" is a consistently compelling, informative, and thoughtful read, highlighted with inspirations for pursuing one's goals to the finish.
Those looking for a road map for life can get directions from the Bishops…. The coauthors, who are volunteer coaches for TheHopeLine, share stories and insights cleverly separated into six thematic sections…. The book incorporates faith without unnecessary preaching.

Looking for more out of life?

After three tours totaling over 10,000 miles, Tim and Debbie Bishop have discovered wisdom and truth from the seat of a bicycle. In Wheels of Wisdom, the authors share the life lessons they learned on the open road.

When you're looking for enlightenment, you can find it almost anywhere, be it from watching two herons saunter across a Florida road, pedaling to a dead-end in a Kentucky tobacco field, or observing eagles flying overhead in Montana. In each lesson of this book, you’ll find practical insights, inspiration, and encouragement―along with personal reflection questions that will help you:

Adopt the right mind-set
Conquer fear, worry, and inaction
Overcome obstacles
Relish life's journey

Certain principles are universal whether you are bicycling across America or chasing your own lifelong dream.

You may be continuing your education, connecting with new people, looking to change jobs, or simply wondering about your future. Wherever you are in life, Wheels of Wisdom will give you a fresh perspective and new motivation for your own adventure. Not only will you encounter meaningful truth as you travel vicariously to new places, you’ll also experience some genuine “God moments” and have some fun on the way.

So pack up your dreams and passions and come along for the ride. It’s time to learn on the open road!
