Wheels of Fortune is the hilariously frank account of a couple’s year-long adventure cycling around all ten Canadian provinces, and twenty-six US states. Chris Fieldsend and Ties Benguedda rode over 14,000 miles (23,000km) through every landscape imaginable; from the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, through the tumbleweed deserts of the Southern states, to the wild coasts of the Atlantic provinces.

This book is packed full of stories about the remarkable hospitality and random acts of kindness the couple experienced, from the hundreds of wonderful people they met. It does not pull any punches, vividly portraying how the novice cycle-touring couple overcame numerous extreme weather events, tedious US visa bureaucracy, fervent dog chases and the populist politics of Brexit and Donald Trump.
