One feels like riding the bicycle along with the writer

April 17, 2023

All the countries, that author has mentioned of, I have visited, but this book made me visit them slow and steady on a bike ride along with him. The chapters had food, bonding and learning with another souls, quite delicately interwoven, which are integral part of everyone’s life, and we all get moved by such feelings and hearty meals most of our lifetime.


Refreshing Adventure

May 2, 2022

Sreenath’s book gives a glimpse of life’s lessons that can be learnt by being in the outdoors and interacting with strangers to experience spontaneous generosity and kindness. Hope it inspires more people to take up such challenges and take a refreshing break from the hectic pace of lifestyles today.

Travel on a humble bicycle!!

I enjoyed reading the book, particularly the interaction with the village people without knowing the language.

Wish Sreenath all the best in his upcoming adventure trips.


Travel bliss

As a reader and rider, this has been an absolute joy to experience through this book.

Uplifting & motivating.


Loved it

January 12, 2022

I really loved reading this book. I found it very easy and uplifting to read, and a great way to start my mornings with a coffee. It’s full of wisdom that can only be gained through experience.

As someone who is naturally quite pessimistic, I found some parts of it challenging to read, and I would sometimes have to think about something I read for a few days before continuing. So thank you for that Sreenath.

Can’t wait for the next one!

Much love from South Africa.


Simple Sublime Spirited!

September 5, 2021

Reading this book makes you think the things you wanna do in your life and couldn’t because of worldly engagements. This book makes you feel you are exactly there with Sreenath living those experiences that you had no courage to. The stories are quite inspiring that it instils enthusiasm in you to follow your drive. I was overall happy reading it. Must read, Must have, Must share.

A journey less ordinary

July 18, 2021

This book has proved that you don’t need a big budget for a transformative life changing adventure. In this day and age with Pandemics and ecological social responsibilities, Sreenath has chosen a road less travelled- a slow road that allows ones spirit to reflect, thrive and recharge! As a novice cyclist, he has taught us that we can all do it; once we have taken that first big, brave step into the unknown, a world of awe, reflection, and possibility awaits every one of us!! Thank you Sreenath, for taking that step : )

Being profound through simplicity

June 27, 2021

This book is a great example of how one can be profound even by being very simple. This book showed it in two ways – one that even if you are travelling on a bicycle, you can reach the highwst point like Khardung La and have a profound experience and second that simple interaction with a monk or a fellow cyclist can give you profound insight! Each and every chapter gave a great learning of life and compelled to pause and reflect!

A sweet read and some heart-touching perspectives

A beautiful journey on a bike with a lot of smiles and several heart-touching perspectives! After reading this book, I’m trying to be a little less serious about my life and a bit more kind.
