Last night on the phone Bob tells me that Laura “annoys” him with her “farther, faster” biking mentality.

He wants to buy her a stopwatch so that she can accurately measure the time she’s not peddling, compared to his constant, relentless pedaling. (On a unicycle there’s no such thing as coasting — and if there is, it always comes with a bit of unwanted sailing.) At the dinner table tonight we wondered how he will feel when she coasts down the entire western side of the Rocky Mountains without so much as a push of the pedal. What a relief to see that the normal sibling relationship is rolling across America!

    When I saw you riding down Rt. 11 outside Potsdam yesterday and then more than 50 miles away just north of Watertown a day later, I knew there must be something going on. Best of luck and ride safe. I’ll be sure to donate in your name after next weeks paycheck!
