About the book

The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, “Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?”

Bill Hicks

In 2011, at the age of 24, Robbie Sage set off on a ride around the world by bike. At the same time, he left behind the ride that he’d been on his whole life.

It’s Just a Ride recounts a journey of discovery – through physical environments as well as the abstract social structures that have become entrenched within society. A search to find what is “real” – what it is that persists throughout the human experience, beyond the rides that divide and condition us.
