Our new friends, Alex and Chris. Alex (13) wants to be a farmer, while Chris (13) wants to be a professional mountain biker. Seeing him jump, maneuver, and just own his bike, there’s no doubt he won’t succeed. Good job guys!
Both of them wanted to join us crossing the nation, but we agreed school comes first. Nonetheless, they rode with us to the edge of LaGrange, OH. They’ll pursue their own journey soon. What a motivation to us! Thank you Chris & Alex!
It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. ~ Ernest Hemingway
