Bicycle Dreams, NY to LA – Beyond Route 66


6″ x 9″, paperback

Bruce Golden has been The Man of Lomontville

He lives on an old farm in the foothills of the Catskills with his wife Linda, where they raised their children Luke and Haley. Bruce taught science, health education and developed the In-school suspension program (problem solving center) for the Rondout Valley Schools. He was a columnist for the Bluestone Press as the Humanist, writing about the significance of all our lives. His bicycle journey has been told through his presentation “The America Crossing” to groups and dreamers of all ages.

The story of a boy from Brooklyn who was abandoned by the Dodgers, and his Schwinn Corvette Bicycle. Together they followed the path of his heroes from the TV show Route 66. A ridiculous, immature adolescent fantasy that burnt into his being and morphed into something so big and powerful that it took over and became the most important thing. The only thing. Bicycle Dreams became real reaching way beyond Route 66.

This book is about the importance of dreams.

    This was a great read. One of the most enjoyable books I read all year.The narrator’s attention to detail made you feel like you were there, experiencing the adventure yourself. This is the high level of writing and I recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors and bicycling.

    Amazing adventures, especially those dripping in sweat and perseverance, are always good chicken soup for the soul.This book is not only an outstanding journal, but also a MLK-esque
    pursuit of the dream that can free people from the 3 P’s-presumptions,predilections and even prejudices that can limit our interactions and understandings of people we meet on life’s roads as well as limit ourselves for fear of trying.
