Dissatisfied with the way his life was going in his early twenties, Andy Welch, wanting to escape office life, came up with a way of breaking out and hitting a trail of adventure.

He decides to cycle around the world with his friend and follow the horizon to the end. After a year of preparation for their adventure cycle tour, with no experience of travelling or idea of what to expect, they wobbled off together following the compass away from their hometown. What unfolded was a journey of a lifetime for which planning could not have prepared them.

Hitting the mountains of Armenia and the wild urban dust of Bucharest; the brooding Black Sea Coastline and the vibrant energy of Tbilisi; the duo experienced and explored the world in ways completely fresh and alien to the path they were on. Two friends wanted to change their lives; they couldn't have changed them more.

Weave of the Ride is a tale of friendshiplovedisaster, and self-transformation, by bicycle, set against the backdrop of a world of strange weatherfriendly strangers, wild dog attacks, and a tapestry of rich local culture and hospitality
