Adair County Cyclists Ride Across 5 Boroughs Of New York; Good Way Across Delaw
This article first appeared in issue 20, and was written by Ed Waggener. The full title appeared as: Adair County cyclists ride across 5 boroughs of New York; good way across Delaware.
Adair County was distinguished in the Sunday, May 3, Ride through the Five Borough of New York City, with cyclists John Cox and Pen Waggener among the 35,000 riders.
It was believed to have been the largest congregation of bicyclists in the history of the universe.
The ride was 42 miles long. It started at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, and took the local cyclists just over four hours to complete, including stops for food, water, and a flat tire.
The ride was part of the commemoration of the 100th year of the union of the five boroughs: Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Queens.
An attempt by the Adair Countians to ride across the State of Delaware failed because of the construction of a golf course, they said.
The high point of the trip, the athletes said, was a stop at an Afghanistan Restaurant in Philadelphia, giving them the distinction of being among the few Adair Countians to have enjoyed the cuisine, which they described as "left of Indian," whatever that means.
Pen Waggener is the crossword and book review editor of Columbia! magazine. He and his wife, Amy, live and work in Louisville. John Cox is employed in Louisville. He and his wife, Lori, live in Radcliffe.
