Road to Freedom Bicycle Tour Across America

During the past three weeks, there have been interviews on this blog about how various writers go about their work. This week we meet another writer, who through a traumatic event, has written a book and is taking her message on her bike around the country.   

Reba J. Hoffman left South Carolina on July 13 riding "Dakota" her Waterford Touring Bicycle. So far, she has logged over 500 miles, met many interesting people and has adventures to tell. But, she isn't just riding to see who is out there, she is riding to inspire women to emerge from their fears and live their dreams. Specifically she is wanting to inspire women who have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and this would include herself. Read her personal story on her blog.   


I met Reba through My Book Therapy, a writing community founded by Susan May Warren. Reba is the Member Care Coach and a great encourager. When I found out she was doing a solo bike ride, across the country, I began to follow her journey. In addition to riding her bike, she will be speaking at various locations about PTSD and violence against women. She hopes to finish her ride, with no time table, on the coast of Oregon or Washington. 

If you struggle with fear or PTSD, Reba has also written a book you might want to check out. Facing Fear and Finding Freedom, Unleash the Power to Live Your Dreams! is an e-book, available on Amazon. You will find fear defined, why we deal with it, and how we can use it to our benefit. Although, it will never totally leave us, we can be free from its grip and reach our goals.

Safe and happy trails, Reba.

How about you? Have you ever attempted or would you like to attempt an adventure similar to Reba's?
