Dissatisfied with the way his life was going in his early twenties, Andrew Welch, wanting to escape office life, came up with a way of breaking out and hitting a trail of adventure by combining his passion for cycling with a thirst for adventure.
He decides to make a bicycle tour around the world and follow the horizon to the end. After a year of preparation, with no experience of travel or idea of what to expect, he wobbled off on his loaded bicycle following the compass away from his hometown. What unfolded was a journey of a lifetime for which planning could not have prepared him.
Hitting the wild urban dust of Bucharest, Romania, the brooding Black Sea Coastline in Turkey, the vibrant energy of Tbilisi, Georgia and the mountains of Armenia; he experienced and explored the world in ways completely fresh and alien to him. One man wanted to change his life and he couldn't have changed it further.
Weave of the Ride is journey into the author's mind as well as an inspiring adventure story, set against the backdrop of a changing world of meeting tumultuous weather, hospitable strangers, wild animals and a tapestry of rich local culture and hospitality
