Dream Whip #15: The Pedal-Powered Movie Tour

Dream Whip #15: The Pedal-Powered Movie Tour

by Bill Brown

“I've always ridden junker bikes in junky clothes, so these skintight bike shorts are a line I'm reluctant to cross. I try them on. It's a weird feeling: part bondage gear, part adult diaper. I feel stupid and just a tiny bit sexy...”

Follow Bill and his friends as they pedal over hill and dale on a bike ride across the United States. It's 2000 miles of meth heads and road rage; rail trails; Mississippi River murder; psychic waitresses; anarchists; haunted Unitarian churches; soybeans from Satan; farm dogs with bad attitudes; and coconut cream pie.

"forgotten towns, ankle biting dogs, politics, and complicated relationships. Bill Brown is one of America’s best writers."

"This charming pocket-sized, handwritten zine is a must-read. Dream Whip is a clever, insightful and humourous glimpse into the people and places that make up America as told by a thoughtful traveller who relishes the small joys of the adventure."

"Brown paints a picture out of road meals and route challenges. It’s calm and ambling, much like a bike tour tends to be. The pages are filled with the graceful ache of empty, forgotten roads and the poetic panic of traversing sketchy highway passes."
