I recently retired from the Biology Department at Kutztown University, where I was lucky enough to work for 33½ years. Colleagues and students, I miss you!

The longest ride I had done previously was 500 miles over a week, so I trained hard for this one.

Please email me with questions or comments:


Thanks to my wife Ann, who always supports my riding cheerfully, to Sam and Rachel for being great, and to my regular riding buddies Rich, Reddy, Scott, Don, Bob, and Mike. Scott rode with me supporting a great cause of his own: LoveToTheRescue.org. We wish the rest of you guys could be with us!

Thanks also to America by Bicycle for supporting the ride logistically and for allowing me to use their photos.
