Bill, as the author of The Lost Cyclist I thank you for your kind words. I might add that Lenz rode through Ontario at the start of his world tour, in June 1892, and was quite captivated by the people and scenery. Although he didn't quite get to Waterloo, he came as close as Brantford, where he spent a night at the Kerby. The local paper pronounced Lenz "perhaps the greatest amateur cyclist in the United States," adding, "Brantford bicyclists will now watch his tour with increased interest."

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
