My wife and I spent this past weekend doing a bit of biking in Northern Michigan. Charlevoix-Boyne City-Petoskey is beautiful with a wide variety of biking opportunities from paved path riding to some great single track.
Out for coffee one morning, I picked up a copy of the Northern Express Weekly, a free, independent newspaper. What caught my eye? Splashed on the front page was a picture of a guy with a single speed and the headline, “A Bike’s Best Friend: John Robert Williams Offers a New Direction for Commuters.” What bike commuting enthusiast wouldn’t grab such a publication?
The title of this post is “A Sermon for the Choir” and Anne Stanton’s article about Williams, his bike fleet (over 20 bikes), and his commuting habits is just that: a sermon about bike commuting that we’ll all read and nod our heads to in agreement.
Here’s a link to the whole article; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
