A 4,000 mile adventure through the small towns and big issues of the USA

Join us to meet award-winning travel writer Simon Parker, as he recalls adventures and highlights of his 10-week, 10mph journey, cycling 4,000 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. 

In the lead-up to the 2024 US Presidential Election – arguably the most divisive in the country’s history – Simon meets hundreds of ordinary Americans. The ‘Middle Americans’ often overlooked by the media. 

He has just one aim: to find the ‘real America’ in its small towns, rainforests, deserts, prairies and mountains. He talks to religious leaders, homeless people, teachers, librarians and cotton farmers.
