Mind is the Ride

by Jet McDonald
£16.99   hardback  Unbound (2019)

Mind is the Ride by Jet McDonald When Jet McDonald cycled four thousand miles to India and back, he didn't want to write a straightforward travel book. He wanted to go on an imaginative journey.
 
Mind is the Ride takes the reader on a physical and intellectual adventure from West to East using the components of a bike as a metaphor for philosophy, which is woven into the cyclist's experience. Each chapter is based around a single component, and as Jet travels he adds new parts and new philosophies until the bike is `built'; the ride to India is completed; and the relationship between mind, body and bicycle made apparent.
 
The age of the travelogue is over: today we need to travel inwardly to see the world with fresh eyes. Mind is the Ride is that journey, a pedal-powered antidote to the petrol-driven philosophies of the past.
