It's All about the Bike: The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels by Robert Penn
Robert Penn has been riding bicycles for thirty-six years: "If you've every experienced a moment of awe or freedom on a bicycle; if you've every taken flight from sadness to the rhythm of two spinning wheels, or felt the resurgence of hope pedalling to the top of a hill with the dew of effort on your forehead; if you've ever wondered, swooping bird-like down a long hill on a bicycle, if the world was standing still; if you have ever, just once, sat on a bicycle with a singing heart and felt like an ordinary human touching the gods, then we share something fundemental. We know it's all about the bike."
Join the Great River Energy Ride on the Mesabi Trail this Saturday, August 13 and experience the euphoria that riding a bike can do for you. 800 people so far are planning on a fun day on the Mesabi Trail.
