Take a Seat: One Man, One Tandem and Twenty Thousand Miles of Possibilities : When Dominic Gill set out from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, by bicycle on June 16, 2006, it was to be no ordinary bike ride. His goal was to reach Ushuaia, the southernmost city in South America, nearly 20,000 miles away, and he was starting off with virtually no money in his pocket, barely enough food to last a week, and, worst of all, with thousands of miles between him and his friends and family. But Dominic had a plan: His bicycle, Achilles, was a tandem and the spare seat was his secret weapon. He would invite strangers to join him on his long journey - strangers he hoped would become friends and help him turn a terrifying prospect into the adventure of a lifetime.
