Unwilling to let the pollsters and pundits define his country, Chris Register traded his ergonomic lawyer’s chair for a stiff bicycle seat and set out to uncover the truth about the state of the nation today. After interviewing hundreds of everyday Americans over 16,000 miles of solo bicycle travel, Chris put down the kickstand to document this epic survey of the United States in his multi-volume Conversations With US series. His latest adventure involves moving from pedal to print with his publishing company, Spoke & Word Books.
