Like everyone else, I started riding as a kid, and got my first racing bike in 1974, a used Raleigh. I have been an ardent cyclist pretty much my whole life, moving up to a beautiful Masi in 1976, which I restored a few years ago and still own.
Although I love to ride, I have to admit I don’t ride as much as I used to—certainly not as much as I intended when we settled in downtown Columbus, with access to miles of wonderful bike trails.
Pelotonia has been on my radar since my arrival on campus last summer; riders were gearing-up for the big ride and the energy was hard to miss.
Why would I not ride?
Beyond the way I feel about biking, I am riding in Pelotonia for other compelling reasons—and I encourage members of our arts and sciences family to join me. I am sure that you can find a reason.
