About the author:
Mike Devloo is a bilingual author and Civil Engineer living in Colorado, USA. Mike grew up playing basketball in the sweaty suburbs of Houston Texas. "I studied hard and got a scholarship to Colorado School of Mines. I was so happy to get out of Texas and live near the mountains for University." With a year studying Engineering in Spain, he completed his bachelors in science in Engineering at Mines in 2005.
Although now a licensed civil engineer, Mike has strayed from the typical career path and since 2007 he has explored a broad spectrum of opportunities from construction writing, to teaching, to raft guiding in India. Mike enjoys a simple outdoor lifestyle and claims that he would rather live in a tent in a beautiful place than work a desk job in an oppressive crowded city. He is an avid kayaker, mountaineer, and snowboarder, always ready for a new adventure.
His professional interests include green building, English-Spanish construction communication, engineering, non-fiction writing, and outdoor film. When between work Mike escapes through travel. "Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Hawaii, and Canada are beautiful. Africa and India are amazing and eye opening. But it's hard to beat summer in the Colorado Rockies!"

Riding the Guerrilla Highway is a true story of a brother and sister's bicycle adventure from Quito, Ecuador to Caracas, Venezuela across Colombia. An incredible ride along difficult, dangerous Andes Mountain back roads. Follow Mike and Suzz up majestic hill climbs to remote villages, historic sites, and natural wonders. Meet peculiar characters they encounter in hard to get to places along their jungle route. Read how Mike and Suzz's brother-sister bond strengthens as the duo overcomes adversity on the road; enduring crashes on rocky mountain roads, escaping thieves, and Guerrillas. The book is more than a factual narration of an epic adventure, Devloo's encounters along the 2 month journey provoke thought on deep subjects such as the effect of technology on human existence, and the balance of time, money, and happiness. Devloo touches on these themes as they are revealed through events that occur in South America. Riding the Guerrilla Highway is a true traveler's tale sure to provoke excitement and awaken desire for adventure in any soul. Travelers to Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela will get an inside look at the hundreds of places described. The text is littered with photographic descriptions of popular and unknown beautiful places visited along the ride. Feel the heat on the steep jungle climbs and the wind in your face as you lose and find yourself on the Guerrilla highway.
