On today's special hour-long Jonesy, our guests are Kristen and Ville Jokinen, who cycled from the top of Alaska to the southernmost tip of Argentina, an adventure covering 18,215 miles over 20 months. Kristen chronicles the trip in the new book Joy Ride: A Bike Odyssey from Alaska to Argentina, from Portland's Hawthorne Books.

In the book’s introduction, Cheryl Strayed writes: “The story of this trip becomes not only about something grand a couple of free spirits rather bravely did, but something all of us can learn from, be inspired by, take to heart… This spectacular book is the story about them and us. And what a joyous ride it is."
