Bicycling Alone Across the Country at Age 70

We begin this fall’s lecture series on Thursday September 26 with a presentation by long-time club member John Springfield as he takes you on his 2,900 mile cross-country bicycle trip. John has been touring for 55 years, more than some of you have been on this planet. Learn what’s it’s like to take on this challenge alone at age 70 as he dodged tornadoes in Mississippi, climbed 3,500 feet in sweltering heat, and mixed with authentic cowboys in the Texas desert. This was not John’s first cross-country but perhaps the most rewarding considering his age. Some 40 years ago, a 27 year old Springfield biked from Seattle to Boston when he was in the best shape of his life, but this last time youth was no longer on his side. He encountered headwinds, rain, traffic, scenic roads and a variety of the good, bad and ugly. This presentation is a must if you are contemplating a cross-country trip or if you simply want to enjoy one vicariously. The presentation specifics are included below and we hope to see you there.

Date: Thursday September 26, 2019
Time: 6 to 7 PM Social hour with refreshments, 7 PM Presentation
Where: Lexington Depot, 13 Depot Square Lexington
Parking: There is a town parking lot adjacent to the Depot.
