I have a life a rich man can’t buy and a poor man can’t steal…

A friend, whose wife will lose her battle with cancer soon, said at a meeting through sobs, “I have a life a rich man can’t buy and a poor man can’t steal”.

They’ve been married 56 years.

Recover hard, my friends. It’s worth it, and the good stuff never lasts long enough.

A Great Friend of Michigan Cycling Passed Away

My wife just got an email that Dick Allen passed away just before Christmas at the age of 88.

DALMAC, our yearly trek from Lansing to Mackinaw City carries his name… the Dick Allen Lansing to Mackinaw bike ride.

I never met the man, but I had a lot of great laughs and memories because he wanted to prove to a fellow politician he could ride his bike from Lansing to Mackinaw City and that bikes needed to be on the roads (not sidewalks, ahem) because there weren’t enough sidewalks for a person to get there.

50 years later and we attract riders from all over the country and a couple of other nations who make the trip to Michigan to join us.

He and the local club put on one heckuva great ride. He’ll be missed, but fondly remembered.
