R809 Summer 2018 Bicycle Riding for the Chronologically Gifted
Tuesday, 11:50–1:15, July 3
One session
Instructor: Lorrin Garson

Bicycle riding for older people can be a source of enjoyment and health benefit or an exhausting, aching, and miserable experience—depending on how you go about it. This presentation is aimed primarily toward those who haven’t ridden in years or have never mounted a bike. What are the risks and benefits? What are appropriate kinds of bikes and what do they cost? Where are good places to ride? How does one get started? How do you stay safe? The presenter has ridden 27,000+ miles since retirement and will provide useful insights from experience.
Lorrin R. Garson holds an MS and PhD in chemistry from the University of Maine. He retired from the American Chemical Society as chief research scientist in 2004.
