A Ride Across America follows award-winning travel writer Simon Parker’s 10-week, 10mph journey, cycling 4,000 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. In the leadup to the 2024 US presidential election – arguably the most divisive in the country’s history – Simon meets hundreds of ordinary Americans in Democrat, Republican and swing states via cities and small towns, rainforests and deserts, prairies and mountains. He has just one aim: to find the real America.
