St. Augustine finishRiding and writing — a delicious combo I served myself daily on the Ride to Awareness in 2015, my first cross-country bike tour. I enjoyed blogging so much and the wonderful folks who followed my blog gave me so much encouragement that I decided to continue blogging, not daily but sporadically when inspired. So here is my new blog – Life is Like a Bike.

Speaking of which, the quote that gave this blog its name came from a church sign I saw in my neighborhood as a cross-country ride became no longer a vague dream but a deliberate plan in the works. And it came from none other than Albert Einstein. However, it had been slightly mangled. Here’s the actual quote:

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”

  1. Hi,,,,Congratulations on your journey. Will there be a ceremony in Bethany Beach to honor your achievement? Would love to be there to witness the joy of what is a remarkable trip. Enjoy! Jim Powers


    1. Thank you, Jim!
      Sunday, October 23, 10:30 am at the totem pole in Bethany Beach. There will be a small group of cyclists to ride in the final mile south to sea colony between Annapolis and Brandywine buildings. I will then roll my bike across the beach and dip my wheel in the Atlantic Ocean.

        Hello Lynn… Congratulations on your significant accomplishment! I have crossed the USA twice, on the Southern Tier and TransAm routes, so can relate to the challenges that you faced, and overcame! There is no similar Guiness World Record for the oldest male to cross America on a bicycle, and your feat has me thinking about it (I will be 77 next year). I would like to talk to you about your experience with Guiness; my email address is below if you are willing to have a discussion.

        Again, congratulations on your achievement!

  2. Hi Lynn-have a wonderful final ride to the Atlantic shore. Looks like north westerly winds will push you along tomorrow. I understand there will be a turn out from Sussex Cyclists joining you for different portions of the route tomorrow and Sunday. Sorry I won’t be in town to see a Guinness world record occur!!
