Love the blog! I have been writing my own blog for 1.5 yrs now and I am happy to see you begin the "journey" So far, loved the Boston Hotel Odyssey - now that I've had my 4th back surgery maybe I can get back on my bike again (fusion 2 years ago) Be well and keep on keeping on.

Interesting stat about 35% of kids riding their bikes to school in the 1970s. I, too, am a "Gen-Xer," and even though my family lived on a small farm about 8 miles outside of town, I still remember occasionally riding my bike to school in the fall and spring. Good memories!


Heath and the cost of healthcare are also important. Cycling is great exercise that also happens to be basic transportation.

It isn't causal. but it is interesting to look at obesity and the amount of active transportation (walking + biking) in a few countries.

Great to hear his stories and feel the texture of the brand. Thanks for sharing. I lost my Dad a few years ago too. Fortunately, my wife and I sent Mom & Dad to Europe so he could retrace his WWII journey. He was D-Day Invasion Beach running Silver Star!
