Around the world cyclist details six years of pedaling

biker me riding past the buddhas

       Cruising past watching Buddhas in Thailand. The speaker said we should all tackle big adventures since we are all terminal cases. 

       Robert Hirsch keeps things pretty simple. He goes by just one name Hirsch; doesn’t have a cell phone, never uses social media - preferring pen and paper, doesn’t make more money than he needs for basic food/shelter and doesn’t give his age (which partially goes back to social ills from him being promoted several grades ahead in school).

In fact for six years he could list his schedule as simply ride bicycle.

[A part 2 of Hirsch speaking is scheduled at the library on March 1 at 6:30 p.m.]
