San Francisco is so full of smug bikers that it’d be foolish not to tell you about this OG cyclist: Ironman triathlete Amy Snyder has written her debut book, Hell On Two Wheels: An Astonishing Story of Suffering, Triumph, and the Most Extreme Endurance Race in the World, and you can meet her, buy her book, and get her John Hancock FREE tonight!
Amy raced 3,000 miles on her bike (it’s called “Race across America” for a reason), and her book describes her journey along with those of a few other competitors. And they didn’t just power up Nob Hill on their fixies, either; this is a race that pushes the limits of human endurance. So if you’re a cycling enthusiast, you should really take this FREE opportunity to pick Amy’s brain about the best routes on that killer ride from Embarcadero to Ocean Beach — and, I guess, about success and tragedy and all that.
