Last night’s hosts lived deep in the country; I pedaled twenty miles of gravel, narrow pavement, and creek level bridges before I reached a numbered highway. The beautiful country compensated for the hard riding.

I spent a great evening in this bike-friendly town with a Wal-Mart Sustainability Manager. Dinner outdoors alongside the main bike path included wood fired pizza from Pedaler’s Pub and craft beer at the Bike Rack Brewing Company.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
