Great local cyclist

Bob McDermand

Bob McDermand is a local cyclist, a good friend and a uber rider. Recently Bob retired and so what is he doing to celebrate his retirement? He is riding across the US, and back again! His story is here.

In 2001 I wrote a story on Bob for Cycle California when he turned 60. That story is here.

There are quite a few differences. Spin bikes do not have freewheels so they do not coast. Spin bikes do not change their orientation to the road.
