The Road, the Man, and the Bicycle
It is the 24th birthday of my second son and it is my wish that the upcoming year be filled with inspiration and good luck for him. This summer after graduating from college with a degree in English, a concentration in writing, and a minor in Spanish he took off with all that education on board to ride his bicycle cross country on the Northern Tier Route by himself. Pictured above is his bike and below is both the bike and the man as they crossed from Pennsylvania into New York. It is a long way to go by yourself, and as is so often the case with personal quests, some of it was very good and some of it was very hard.
