Old men, bikes and Hemmingway......
My brother and I will be riding bikes form Deer Park to the High Bridge of the Two Hearted River and back on Saturday. We will be drunk and still drinking. He's riding a 1954 Schwinn Corvette and I'm on my Raleigh Twenty........(Ernie never fished the Two Hearted; he fished the Fox but the Two Hearted was more literary) H.G. Wells said something like "everytime I see an adult riding a bicycle I have faith in the human race" I hope it doesn't snow like it did last year.
Sounds like a plan, Good Luck.
A wonderful outing! Enjoy!

What a post. I have no idea where all this is taking place.
But I do have an adequate collection of Hemingway.
Given the OP's stated location of "Marquette" I suspect it's here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, not far from Sault St Marie: http://maps.google.com/maps?sourceid...+hearted+river

But right now I am familiarizing myself with Carlos Ruiz Zafon's Barcelona, in preparation... maybe a couple of years hence?
Literature, the bicycle, opera.. splendid combinations!
I sometimes ride like there is a charging bull coming up on my backside.
(Does that count as an insightful post?)
