I’ve decided that the immediate “what’s next” for me will be to ride my bicycle across the U.S. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was in college. After many cross-country road trips by car, the thought occurred to me that it would be wonderful to see the country at a much slower speed. Now, I have that opportunity. And, it’s a good way to unload some of the caloric energy I’ve been storing around the waist these past few years while sitting behind a desk.
After some research, I decided to buy a semi-custom touring
bike from Bruce Gordon. The man is quite a character, with a shop that could belong to Dr. Emmet Brown. But in the touring world his bikes have a great reputation. I pick the mine up tomorrow.
