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.

Review:

A book of effortless, effervescent metaphysics, a gleeful freewheeling ride through the mind of humanity. It is a breathtaking, brilliant, astounding book, as genial as it is exquisite, and as ludic as it is erudite. Bravo!' --Jay Griffiths, author of Wild: An Elemental Journey

Elegant, wild, poised, and explosive. A serious and exhilarating interrogation of the nature of being. McDonald shows us what happens when we pay attention to the world, and what doesn t happen when we don t. His book should tip you into a long overdue crisis' --Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast

'Full of wandering and wondering, a thoroughly quirky quest for enlightenment on two wheels' --Jack Thurston, author of the 'Lost Lanes' series
