door to door
Hello there. My name is Alonzo Ziv Mandanna. When my car was totaled in 2003, I replaced it with a bike, now it is 2013 and still no car and you DON'T need one. Although, I admit at times, it is difficult when living 117 miles away from the nearest reasonably-priced grocery store...reasonable to say the least that is. Over the years, I have gotten around via: my feet, bikes, packrafts, hitch-hiking, friends, buses, planes, trains, tuk-tuks and bike taxis, one in particular, who with a little convincing let me peddle the taxis....I damn near wrecked us in Delhi. I recently purchases a cross-country touring bike, one that was made when I was six. The bike is a blast. I did my first multi-day bike trip this past summer around the interior of Alaska. The trip lasted 4.5 days and I ended up peddling 450 miles....fun, painful, beautiful are a few of the many adjectives. My trip started at my door and I loved finishing at my door. The reason I ride, well there are many, raising awareness and support for diabetes, the simple act of the movement, the adventure, the simplicity of travel, to take time, to push myself, to ride and support friends and of course more. I hope you get out, get on and get peddlin'...soon...that sounds cheesy. With warm regards, Alonzo P.S. you cannot see it to well, but do not be afraid of the mustache. also on some days, pavement is a saving grace.
