150 miles every week

Biked from Disney’s North border to Celebration Place.

When we returned permanently to Orlando in 1984, we owned one car.

My first Disney role as River Country Lifeguard required a 36-mile roundtrip bicycle ride from our apartment in Kissimmee.

The second role in Resort Hotel Operations mandated a 30-mile one-way bike ride from Poinciana to Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Only completed the Poinciana roundtrip version once. Sixty miles plus an 8.5-hour shift, meant i left Magic Kingdom at 12:20AM and biked through the night arriving home at 2:45AM.

Grateful to have had a neighbor who worked the same 4PM – Midnight shift with the same days off, and had a pickup truck i could throw my bicycle into and catch a ride home 5 nights a week.
