Eventually had a 30-mile one way ride from 1st home to this hotel in 1985-87

 

To what extent and to what motivation do we owe our glorious physical activity as a young adult?

Reflecting back on the fact that the equivalent of two trips around the equator have been ridden on a bicycle in this lifetime.

Bike riding began the summer of 1979 living a few hundred miles from home in New Brunswick, New Jersey on the Rutgers campus.

Old car broke down, no money to fix it – left abandoned and never saw it again.

Rode that old Sears 10-speed 30 miles round trip – New Brunswick to Scotch Plains – everyday to work.
