Lois on the Loose
By

Rating
Lois Pryce was working at the BBC in London, firmly set on the career track. But unbeknownst to her coworkers, Lois was leading a parallel life as well, that of a biker babe with an overwhelming case of wanderlust, one that couldn't be satisfied by a weekend holiday. Her days in a cubicle were numbered, and it wasn't long before she was back on her bike and looking for adventure.Armed only with the Spanish words for "caution" and "cheese," Lois set off to conquer America---both Americas, actually. Starting in Alaska and working her way down the Pacific Coast, she rode through snow, desert, and everything in between to reach the southernmost tip of Argentina. Lois tackled every type of fellow biker imaginable and endured everything the continents could throw at her with quick thinking and a vibrant sense of humor. Whether bribing her way through Central American borders, spending the night in a Mexican brothel, or crashing her bike in Patagonia, Lois's bright, funny travelogue will charm anyone who longs for adventure and a stretch of the open road.

Reviews

Advance Praise for "Lois on the Loose" "Mix a biting British sense of humor with a Yamaha motorcycle and you get this adventure-filled story about an intrepid woman facing her destiny across the Americas, one rain-soaked, bug-infested, low-quality-taco-filled mile at a time."---Wendy Dale, author of "Avoiding Prison and Other Noble Vacation Goals" "If traveling is a sort of education, then Lois Pryce is now one of the world's most learned adventurers. Her misfortunes, related with wit and good humor, become our fortune, a great tumble of rough gems and gold. Her bike may not be fast, but her account is all speed and joy."---Melissa Holbrook Pierson, author of "The Perfect Vehicle: What It Is About Motorcycles"" ""Lois makes merry work of a rough road. She knows how to tell a good story, and her lighthearted account almost disguises the grit, the resilience, and the brave independence that lay behind her choices. It's a great read, and I hope there will be more."---Ted Simon, author of "Jupiter's Travels " "Like spending an evening in a warm pub transfixed by a friendly storyteller recounting wild adventures."---Tom Miller, author of "The Panama Hat Trail" "If I had a motorcycle, and handlebars had dashboard saints, I'd buy me a little plastic Lois to keep front and center, to remind me to keep my sense of humor when the gaskets start blowing and that it ain't the destination so much as the ride."---Ayun Halliday, author of "No Touch Monkey! And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late "
